What will you major in/study? Pre-Med
Why did you choose Goucher? “The first time I was on campus I could see myself at the school. The campus felt right for me. I really liked the team and the academic opportunities the school offered. Coach (Brian) Kelly and Coach Phelps are really great guys that can definitely Coach a winning program. I also really enjoyed how the campus is right down the street from the city but while you’re on campus it doesn’t have a city feel to it.”
Outlook for your High School team? “We lost some really talented seniors after last season, but I think we are going to have a strong season. We have a good senior class this year and a lot of up and coming younger guys that will make significant contributions to our team. That combined with strong senior leadership could make for a great year.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank all of my coaches (Donnelly,Czapor,Capone, Monzo and Lambert) for helping me have a successful High School career. I would also like to thank my Twist coaches (Devlin, Flego, and Serio) they were a huge reason I have this opportunity.
“Finally, I would like to thank my family the most for all the effort, support, and countless hours spent to give me this opportunity.”
