Why did you choose St. Joe’s? “I chose St. Joseph’s because as soon as I stepped on campus it felt like home. The coaches at St. Joe’s are very experienced and are determined to make this program as well as the players the best they can be. The current players are all focused on performing at the highest level both on and off the field. All of these factors made St. Joe’s the perfect fit for me.”
