What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose school? “I chose Dartmouth because out of all the schools that I visited, I felt the most at home there. I felt a real sense of comfort sitting in Coach (Brendan) Callahan’s office when he discussed the same values that my parents have taught me since I could walk. Prior to my visit at Dartmouth, my sister told me ‘When you find the school that is right for you, you will know it.’ After my visit I knew that Dartmouth is where I want to go.”
Outlook for your High School team? “We will be one of the best teams in New England. We have a strong group of PG’s and a skilled senior class. The underclassmen will bring a lot to the table as well.”
Other Comments: “I’d like to thank the Dartmouth coaching staff for giving me this opportunity. I’d like to thank my high school coaches, Dr. Skip Flanagan and Keith Lee, for all the help and support during the recruiting process. I’d like to thank my Mesa Fresh coaches, John Nostrant and Bill Holmes. Lastly, I’d like to thank my family for everything they have done.”
Other schools considered: Delaware, Colgate, Fairfield, Georgetown Lafayette
