Why did you choose Bellarmine? “When I took my visit to Bellarmine and met with Coach (Kevin) Burns, I knew right away that this was who I wanted to play for. Coach Burns is an awesome coach who I just know I’ll love playing for. What topped it all off was Bellarmine’s academic programs because every major I was looking to study they had.”
Outlook for your High School team next season? “Although we lost a lot of talented guys, I know we have more great guys coming up to fill big roles. We have a lot of potential for this season coming up and I am really excited to see what we can do.”
