What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose Temple? “I like all of the options Temple offers both academically and athletically. I felt very comfortable with the coaching staff and the players and I’m excited to play in the Big East as a Temple Owl. While spending time at a Temple practice I really liked what I saw. I could tell the girls respected their coaches, they liked being there, and they liked each other. That is really important to me. I also like that Temple is close to home so my family can support me at my games.”
What is your outlook for your HS team for next season? “After making it to the state finals this year I am hopeful that we will get back there again in 2013. We are losing some key players this year, but I am looking forward to watching the underclassmen step it up and help us make it back to the state playoffs.”
Additional Comments: “I would like to give a special thanks to my family. Mom, thanks for not only being a great role model but for being an amazing coach. Dad, thanks for guiding me in the right direction and giving me good advice. You’re both the best!!
“I would also like to thank my Brandywine Majors coach Karen Borbee and my high school coaches Rachel Busza and Laura Patton. Thank you for believing in me and making me the player I am today. Thanks to my soccer coaches who have helped mold me as an athlete and always supported me.
“Shout out to my teammates, you’re all amazing!!”
