What will you major in/study? Economics
Why did you choose the school? “It has a great campus that is absolutely beautiful. I love coach (Richie) Meade. Radnor Coach (John) Begier said to me, ‘Hey, they are looking to start a new program.’ Coach Meade was a great coach at Navy for 27 years and I thought it would be a good opportunity to be part of something new and that one day I could go back and say I was on the first team.”
Outlook for 2013 HS season: “Our goal is the state championship. We fell a little bit short last year, but that’s what we are working for every day.”
Other comments: “I want to thank John Begier, (Mesa Fresh) coach John Sims and Gary Martin for making me play defense back in fifthe grade. I also was to thank Larry Disipio Sr. and Larry Disipio Jr.”
