What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose school? “I chose the University of Michigan because I was blown away from the second I stepped foot on campus. There was something about the Michigan pride; the atmosphere contained that was irresistible. The amazing academics, beautiful facilities and over all welcoming feeling of the campus and coaches was exactly what I wanted. Plus. I am a huge hockey fan and nothing is better than Michigan Hockey.”
Outlook for your High School team? “This year, coming off a very successful season in 2014, should be exciting. This past season we started six freshmen and made a name for ourselves. I feel this year, now having the experience, we have the skill to win States, and we expect nothing less of ourselves.”
Other Comments: “I would like to thank my parents for being my supporters, my brother, my teammates, and most importantly my club owner Charlie Shoulberg for believing in me and letting me play for such a prestigious club as his. I owe so much gratitude for the player he has made me into over the years and the faith he’s had in me that got me to where I am today.”
Other schools considered: Duke University, Princeton University, Johns Hopkins University, University of Florida
