Why did you choose this school? “I loved everything about it. It made me feel like home and it is a beautiful campus. Coach (Bruce) Reid struck me a coach who knew what he was talking about, and I love that. The school has a great physical therapy-athletic training program and I knew I wanted to go down that path. It was the perfect school for me in every aspect.”
HS team’s outlook for 2016 season? “We have been on the rise the past couple years and this is our big year. We have the opportunity to really turn heads and show our district what we got. We went from winning one game a season to winning five or six and this year we are looking to double that. Obviously there are some really good teams out there, but for the first time since 2009 we are looking to go into regionals and possibly to the State tournament.”
Thank You: “I want to thank Coach Sobel who has been working with me since my sophomore year to get me where I am today. Without him none of this would have been possible. Also, my parents because they have pushed me to become a better athlete. After I tore my ACL a second time I thought about quitting because of all the injuries. My mom told me no and to push past it and for that I am thankful. I really want to think my friends and teammates. They have been by my side through it all and really pushed me to become a better person and athlete.”
Other schools considered: Lycoming, Shenandoah, Southwestern, Marywood
