Why did you choose school? “I chose Marymount because of it’s excellent academic reputation, and small private school environment. In addition, Marymount’s proximity to Washington, D.C. will offer me excellent internship opportunities. I was also very impressed with Coach Reynold’s and felt very comfortable with him and the team during my two visits to Marymount.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “Our team is looking very good for the spring. We have a good number of starting varsity players returning. We are preparing very hard in the off season and are working towards achieving our season goal of winning the PCL Championship and earning a berth in the state playoffs.”
Other comments: “I would first like to thank my mom and dad for their years of support. I would also like to thank Archbishop Wood’s head coach Jim Beury, and my LB3 coaches J.P. Banks and Old Man Banks. In particular, I am very grateful to my goalie coach, Kevin Banks, for all he has taught me. Lastly, I would like to thank Coach (Jon) Reynolds for recruiting me to Marymount.”
