Why did you choose this school? “For the opportunity to play for Coach Doc (brian Dougherty); he is one of the greatest players of all time and to be able to learn from him will be a great experience. The campus is great and is close to Philadelphia.”
How do you look back on the 2012 season? “We had a great run this year. it was tough being injured the whole season, but everyone in my senior class gave everything this year and their leadership and hard work makes me proud to have played with these guys. We have many underclassmen who will be great players and I look forward to watching them break records at Shanahan.”
People I would like to thank? “I would like to thank my Shanahan coaches, coach Heisman, coach Meyers, coach Cash, coach Carruthers and coach Groves (my father); my black bear coaches coach Hajek and coach Spano; and my PYLA coach Chris Layne, and most importantly my family. All of these people have supported me during my career and will continue into my college career.”
