What will you major in/study? Special Education
Why did you choose Walsh? “I chose Walsh because every time I visited Coach (Jason) Fautus made me feel like I belonged there, his enthusiasm for me reached another level and that’s what made me feel like I belonged there. Coach Fautus also made everything he said seem really promising, along with him being a goalie in college he knows a lot about the position and will be able to make me into the best player I can be. Walsh also had special education which was the difference maker in my decision of schools.”
What is your team’s outlook for next season? “My team is looking decent this year, we are returning two very good defensemen along with me in between the pipes. We will also have a strong attack force with two out of the three starters returning.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents and all of my coaches.”
