What will you major in/study? Physical Therapy
Why did you choose this school? “I chose ODU because, if you go to one of their camps, you will learn more in a single day than you would at other colleges. Not only that, but the team and the coaching staff are so amazing and welcoming, it makes me feel like home every time I go there. I’m really looking forward to playing with ODU.”
HS team’s outlook for 2016 season? “We have a lot of new players this season, so overall this season is mostly going to be about learning new things and trying different options on the field. Every morning I get up early and pick up the freshman who are just starting that want to learn, and I just show them how to do things better and I’m excited to see how they play out on the field.”
People to thank: “I would like to thank Coach Roy Reynolds (who is now coaching at Reinhardt University), Coach Scott, Coach Wykes, and the Break Out conditioning crew for never failing to push me past my limits. I would also like to thank the Coss Family and the Tomasulo Family for always believing in me and being there for me. Also, I would like to thank my Father, coach, and number 1 supporter, for pushing me and believing in me and putting in the effort that was needed. I love you guys!”
Other schools considered: Louisville, Stetson University
