What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose Dartmouth? “First of all, I love Coach (Andrew) Towers’ enthusiasm and energy. He was the only coach I met that really expressed those attributes. Also, as an Ivy League institution, Dartmouth can provide me with all the tools I need to be successful and reach my goals.”
Thoughts on last season and outlook for next season? “I was injured for half of this past season, and our whole team in general was very depleted at times. We didn’t live up to expectations, as our talent should’ve taken us much further than just the District semifinals. We lost eight key players to graduation, so this coming year will be a rebuilding year.”
Thank You: “First and foremost I’d like to thank to thank my parents for all the time and energy they’ve given to help me reach my goals. I’d also like to thank Coach Craft from CHS, and Coach Sadtler from ACAC. Both of them made my recruiting process go tremendously smooth.”
Other schools considered: Princeton, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Delaware
