Why did you choose Notre Dame? “Notre Dame is not just a college. When I walked on that campus I fell in love with the atmosphere and I knew it was the place for me. Also, I know that academically and athletically it will be a challenge, but I feel if I work hard I will be successful there.”
Outlook for your High School team? “We return most of our team from last year. We hope to contend for the County Title once again and also win the Long Island and State Championship.”
Thank You: “I like to thank Coach Rose, Coach Weiner and Coach Thorn who have been very instrumental in improving my game. I would like to thank all my teammates on Yellow Jackets, Under Armour and ESM. Without them I would not have had the success and championships. I would also like to thank my family; my Dad, Mom and sisters who are always there for me and my biggest supporters.”
