Why did you choose Rollins? “Rollins is a top academic school. That was a top priority for me. The class sizes are small and I really felt this would benefit me. The campus is spectacular; Mission Style architecture and the campus sits on Lake Virginia. I really felt a connection with guys on the team and I know where the coaches expect us to be in the next few years.”
Outlook for your High School team? “Last year a lot of people counted us out, because it was a rebuilding year, but we worked hard and got to the semi-finals. This year we have a great group of returning starters and some young guys who are going to make an immediate impact. As a captain this year, I want to see us back in the championship game.”
Thank You: “I really want to thank the coaching staff at Resolute for their support in my development. I also want to thank Coach Triplet for his support and confidence to let me lead the defense last year. It was invaluable.”
Other schools considered: Richmond, Robert Morris, St. Joes, RIT, Florida Southern, Bentley
