Why did you choose the school: “The rich culture and the feeling of small community hidden in a large institution was my first draw. The camaraderie among the team and the energy of the coaching staff made me appreciate Big 10 athletics and its competitiveness. It’s a proud allegiance and I’m happy to be a part of it.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season: “Following our second-place finish last year, we are looking to make a run for the state title this year, which would be the first in our school history. Our team has strong returning players, and we have some out of state games lined up to kick off our title run. I’m very excited to see what our season has in store for us.”
Thank You: “First and foremost, I’d like to thank God for giving me the gifts and talents he has. Thank you to my parents for going across the country for me during this process. I’d like to thank Coach Ryan, my high school coach, for all her guidance. My Eagle Stix coaches, Coach Godby and Coach Snider, thank you for helping me grow and develop and for being my liaison to the coaches. And a big thank you to my teammates, Eagle Stix ’17 and the Walton Raiders for making me a better player.”
