Why did you choose Thiel? “Thiel just felt like the perfect fit. I have considered many schools throughout this whole process and I just felt like I belonged at Thiel. Sure there could’ve been higher options but I truly felt with Coach (Jeff) Arneson’s guidance the tomcats will have a breakthrough class of 2020.”
HS team’s outlook for 2016 season? “As a 4 year member of Central Catholic I honestly feel like this year is it. We have had our run-throughs and we’ve been down on our luck but we have been pushing ourselves to the limit from day 1 trying to make this program something to remember. I hope all underclassmen learn from this experience.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents especially, they have been there with me every step of the way agreeing with every decision I made as long as it made me happy.
“I would like to thank the multiple coaches I have had over these past few years for making me become the athlete I am today and getting me to this point in my life. GO TOMCATS!”
Other schools considered: Robert Morris University, University of Tampa, Cleveland State University, University of Akron
