What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose the school? “Fairfield has everything I have been looking for both academically and athletically in my college search. Coach Copelan and his staff have turned the program into one of the best in the nation. The players were so welcoming on my visit and are respected on both the field and around campus. Fairfield’s campus is the perfect distance from home, and had the exact size and setup which I had been searching for. Fairfield will give me the tools to not only be successful in college, but throughout the rest of my life. I am excited for this amazing opportunity and to be a part of such a great place.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for 2013 season? “Despite losing many key players on both the offensive and defensive sides of the field, I think our young players alongside our upperclassmen leadership will pull together for a successful season. The Inter-Ac is tough every year, and our out of league schedule will be just as challenging. Our ultimate goal is to win the Inter-Ac, and I think we have that opportunity this upcoming spring.”
Other comments: “I would like to start off by thanking my Penn Charter coaches, Coach Pat McDonough and Coach Billy Mckinney. They have developed me into the player that I have become, and they will help me to continue to grow my game throughout my remaining years of high school. Also, I would like to thank my Dukes LC coaches, Coach Ebe Helm and Coach Jason Christmas. They provided the important college exposure in both this past fall and summer that was key in this process. Last but not least, I would like to thank my family. They have always been there to guide me in the right direction and have supported me with everything I have done.”
