Why did you choose Wagner? “When I first visited Wagner I really loved the campus. It is ten minutes from the city and only a car ride away from home. I also liked the school not just for athletics but also for its academics. Also I feel that the program is going in a positive direction with the hiring of [head] coach [Matt] Poskay.”

What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “Our goal for this season is a state championship. We have been there the past two years and both times we fell short. We are returning a lot of starters from last year so hopefully we can achieve our goal.”

Other comments:
“I would like to thank my high school coach, JC Valore. Without him, I wouldn’t be doing this interview right now. I would also like to thank two other coaches who have taught me everything I know about facing off, coach [Marc] Voumard, who is also my high school team’s defense coach, and coach Matt Schomburg out of Long Island.”
