Why did you choose the school? “I wanted the challenge of coming out of a small public school and getting the chance to play for one of the one best teams in the country. I want to work as hard as I can to make it on the field. I want to show kids that you don’t have to go to a big private school or the best team. If you put the extra work in before or after practice it can show.”
Positives for the HS season? “We work every well together. We go into every game saying, ‘We can win this if we play our best.'”
Thank You: “My mom has taken me everywhere and paid for everything that I do; my high school coach Mark Princehorn; Philly Face-Off coach John Bodnar and Face-Off Academy coach Greg Gurenlian. Also, thanks to Sean Ruen, of North Penn, who helped get me connected to Syracuse.”
Other schools considered? Monmouth, Rutgers, Mount St. Mary’s
