Why did you choose Tampa? “Their head coach reached out to me after seeing me play this summer and wanted me down for a visit. I looked in to the academic side of things and saw they offered the major I wanted and things like that so it seemed like a good match before even visiting. Once I visited the academic and athletic facilities were amazing and I liked the coaches and the atmosphere.”

Thank You: “Thank you to my high school coaches, coach Harper and coach Antolick. Coach Antolick has coached me since he first got me to pick up a stick in second grade and since then on and off the field he’s been a person I look up to. Also, a big thanks to my face-off coach, Jeremy Rualo; he’s the one that’s helped me get my craft of facing off to where it is now and a big reason I’ll be able to play at the next level. My parents play a huge role; they book their whole summer around my tournaments and make sure I get where I need to be since Club ball requires a lot of travel. My mom is my number one supporter and my biggest role model. She’s taught me the importance of hard work, and you can always catch her wearing number 11 on the sidelines.”
