What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose Johns Hopkins? “I’ve always known that Johns Hopkins is one of the top academic colleges in the country, but after I visited the beautiful campus and met the coaches and players, I knew almost immediately that it was where I belong.
“The school fits me both academically and athletically, and the coaching staff is amazing! Coach (Janine) Tucker, Coach (Tara) Singleton, Coach (Steele) Stanwick, and all the players are so welcoming and enthusiastic–they treated me like I was a member of their family! I can’t wait to be a part of the Hopkins tradition!”
Outlook for your High School team? “Good Counsel has had a very strong program for many years under Coach Haight, winning almost every year in the conference championships and playing a very tough schedule. We were one of the top 25 teams in the country last year, and with the young talent we have now, I think we are only getting better! I’m hoping that we will be the conference champs again this year and continue to stay at the top of the national rankings.”
Thank You: “I want to thank my family for supporting and encouraging me in all that I do. I also want to thank my High School and club coaches, Mike Haight, Steve Ghent, Noelle Hopper, and Joe Provance for teaching me the skills to excel and be the best I can be both on and off the field.”
Other schools considered: Vanderbilt, James Madison, Virginia Tech, Duke, Penn State
