Why did you choose school? “I chose Winthrop University for several reasons. I wanted to go to school in the south where there was a good balance of academics and athletics. The campus was very homey, and the coaching staff and team have great chemistry.”
Outlook for your High School team? “My high school team has a lot of talent and we are looking to win the NYS Section 3 Championship. We lost to Baldwinsville in the championship game last year. It was tough as we had defeated West Genesee in the semifinals. We feel as though we have some unfinished business. We are very excited for the upcoming season.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank everyone who has been there to help influence, coach, and support me throughout the years. In particular my speed and agility coach Dennis Dewane, and my club coach, Doug Rowe. They both have been positive inspirations. I also want to thank the Winthrop coaching staff for believing in me. The biggest thank you goes out to my Mom and Dad!”
Other schools considered: High Point, Lehigh, Richmond
