What will you major in/study? Undecided/Economics
Why did you choose Colgate? “Academics are extremely important to me and Colgate represents the highest level of academics. I am also very impressed with Coach (Mike) Murphy and the program he’s built. I believe that I’ll feel at home at Colgate.”
Outlook for your High School team? “The first half of our season we’ll be very strong, but our toughest opponents come in the second half. Last year we had a major upset by beating Churchill. That will be a hard feat to repeat again this year but we will work hard to be the best team we can be.”
Thank You: “I’d like to thank Coach Kowalick who was my first High School Coach. Coach Kowalick took a big chance on me as an unproven and inexperienced new player by moving me up to Varsity in my Freshman Year.
“Also, my current HS Coach, Coach Gonzalez who has always supported me.
“I’d also like to thank my club coach, Coach Mollett. He has taught me so much and improved my lax IQ a lot.
“I want to thank my Mother and Father for all they do for me. My twin brother, Colton for always supporting me and my little twin sisters, Emma and Rachel for always cheering me on.”
