Why did you choose High Point? “I picked High Point University for many reasons. One, it is probably the most beautiful campus I have seen. When I arrived and toured the campus and got to talk to the coaches I loved it. It was definitely a place I could see myself going for the next four years outside of high school.
“Another key reason I picked High Point was because I have a really close/good relationship with my club coach, coach Trig(Blackwolf). When I talked to Coach (Jon) Torpey that’s who he reminded me of. Someone’s who straight forward with you and will tell you the truth even if it might kill you and I liked that. That’s only two of the many reasons why.”
What are your thoughts on your H.S. team for next season? “This past season we started out 5-0 like we have the last couple years coming out of our spring break tournament. We are a very young team, my freshman year we started 5 freshman then started around 8 sophomores my sophomore year. I have nothing but high expectations for the next years because we have matured and are way more experienced than most of the talent we will be facing.”
