What will you major in/study? Business/Economics
Why did you choose F&M? “F&M has the perfect combination of academics and athletics that will give me the best opportunity to be successful after college. On my visits I was really impressed with Coach (Todd) Cavallaro and his assistants and their commitment to the program. The location and size were exactly what I was looking for which made my decision easy.”
Outlook for next season? “We lost a few seniors who really helped out our team this past year, but have a strong group of underclassmen who can definitely help us. With that being said we still have the same goals. We look to win our fourth consecutive League title, contend for a District championship, and make a run in the PIAA State playoffs.”
Thank You: “I would like the thank my parents and brothers for their continued support throughout this entire process. Without their help and guidance this process would have been much harder.
“I would also like the thank my High School coaches (Bill Hughes, Joe Bialek, and Zac Groff) for giving me the advice I needed and developing me into a better player.
“I would like to give a huge thank you to my club coaches Brian Vetter and Steve Henze. I can’t thank you two enough for providing me with the exposure and coaching needed to be successful. It has been a great run.”
