What will you major in/study? Business

Why did you choose school? “I felt as if Villanova was a perfect fit for me both academically and athletically. When I went for my overnight visit, I felt like the players on the team were just like me. I am also a huge fan of the coaching staff. Coach (Michael) Corrado sat down with me and my family, and we all felt very comfortable talking with one another. I also wanted to play for a team that goes up against the best competition in the country. Overall, I thought Villanova was the best fit school for me.”

What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “Last year we had a tough loss to Summit in the semi finals of the state playoffs. We were a very young team last year consisting of mostly sophomores. I have all the confidence we will make it back to the semi finals again this year and hopefully to the state championship.”

Other comments: “I would first like to thank my parents for always being at my games and supporting me on all of my decisions. Also, I would like to thank Chuck Apel and Matthew Wilk for coaching me in both the Fall and Summer. They really helped me with the recruiting process. Last but not least, I would like to thank my High school coach Gilman Eaton, and my original coaches Pete McKeon, Marc Remoli, Mark Raposo, and Neil LeBlond.”
