What will you major in/study? Economics and Finances
Why did you choose Hartford? “Hartford has a great business school which includes the major I am interested in pursuing. The location of the school was a big draw and a great choice for me in regards to future internships. Coach (Peter) Lawrence and his coaching staff were incredibly welcoming and made me feel right at home. I look forward to the team’s bright future ahead in the America East conference. I couldn’t be more excited to join the Hartford program and continue my education at the University!”
Outlook for your High School team? “Our season ended sooner than it should have, but we are going to work in the off-season to make a run in the State tournament.”
Additional Comments: “I would like to thank my parents for supporting me throughout the years with everything I took part in to make this accomplishment possible. My youth coaches, Coach Seng, Coach Tonno, and Coach Kelly for teaching me the basics of the game. Also, my coaches at Emmaus, Scott Ketcham, J.D Wilson, Desi Gonzalez, and Stu Speicher for helping me become better on and off the field, as well as supporting me throughout the recruiting process. My club coach, Lou Gonzo, for everything he did to make this happen and helping me improve my game. I also would like to thank the Hartford coaching staff for giving me the opportunity to become a Hawk and I cannot wait to arrive on campus!”
