What will you major in/study? Special Education
Why did you choose the school? “After my overnight visit I knew York was the right place for me. Coach (Brandan) Childs is an excellent coach and has been great during the recruiting process, the campus is very nice and mostly brand new and the academic programs are a great fit for me. Coach Childs is going to build something special and I’m glad to be a part of it.”

Other comments: “I’d like to thank my parents for all their support and for driving me all over the east coast over the last few years for summer tournaments and camps. I’d like to thank my high school coach Josh Hanlon for all his guidance and coaching over the last three years. He has really helped me develop into the player I am today. Also, thank you to my LB3 coaches; Kevin Banks, JP Banks, Jim Beury and Old Man Banks for the coaching, guidance and opportunity to play in great tournaments over the past three summers. All of these coaches have helped me in many different ways.”
