Why did you choose the school? “I liked UD because it had a traditional East Coast college feel. It feels like a big campus but in reality it has smaller classes with a great education. I love UD. The academic support is outstanding. The facilities are incredible. I loved the coaches and felt they really cared about me and wanted me.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “Last year we finished third in the state and this year I think we could contend for a state championship. We have a strong Junior class and we are working very hard.”

I would like to thank Jono Zissi from WCS, Ryan Powell from Rhino, and Scott Demonte. I would also like to thank my best friend, Cam James, for always being there for me and always doing one on ones with me. From 5:30 am workouts to 10 pm workouts, we are always together. I would also like to thank my high school coach, Joe Corbitt.”
