What will you major in/study? “I am admitted into Butler’s selective Direct Entry Pathway for Physician Assistant Studies (Health Sciences BS & Physician Assistant Studies MS).”
Why did you choose Butler? “I chose Butler because it has established traditions, rigorous academic programs, and a commitment to excellence. Butler is located in the Midwest within a great city (Indianapolis) and competes in the Big East Conference. I love Trip, Butler’s live mascot. I am excited to help Coach (Cecil) Pilson establish the program at Butler.”
HS team’s outlook for 2016 season? “Cedar Park had no seniors last year; 2015 was truly a year for reloading and maturing. For 2016, we add even more talent and experience. We have numerous ’16 and ’17 commits to lead the team to District (and hopefully on to State). Overall, the Central Texas district is growing and developing; it is exciting.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank the coaches who have developed me over the years including Charlotte (Brewer) Johnston, Nathan Snyder, Halsey Daikow, Richard Herrington, Steve Elder, Amy Markwort, among others…and Morgan Cook at Corrigan Sports for administering the major tournament house teams. Thank you!
“I cannot forget the medical professionals who have kept me in the game including Dr. Jordan Pellien, DC, MSc and Kyler BrownDC, CCSP of Austin Sports Therapy; as well as Dr. Donald Davis MD of Texas Orthopedics when things broke altogether. Thank you!
“And, last, I must thank my parents for enduring countless training sessions, camps, road trips, and tournaments for both soccer and lacrosse.”
