What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose Nova? “Villanova is a fantastic school academically and I look forward to becoming part of the Nova Nation. I believe the awesome Coaching staff at Villanova has the program moving in a great direction, and we will compete for championships in the Big East and NCAA tournaments.
“Finally, the team is a close group of guys with a team first culture and they really made me feel apart of the team when I visited.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “I am really excited for this upcoming season and I believe that this team will take MBS to the next level. Although we lost only one senior last year, he was a big part of our team and a great leader. Coach Tromonda trains us at the highest levels from a conditioning standpoint and stresses an up tempo game. I think we will have a great shot at winning county and states.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank everyone at Leading Edge for challenging and pushing me on and off the field, Coach Roy for his guidance and time helping me navigate the recruiting world, Coach Sal for pushing me to work hard on the field and in the weight room.
