What will you major in/study? Business/ Sports Management
Why did you choose school? “I chose the University of Tampa because of the location and the academic excellence it offers. The coaching staff (coach Kelly Gallagher and coach Kelly Ryan) are amazing and the team was great! I can’t wait to get to the campus in the fall.”
Thoughts on your HS team’s 2016 season? “We lost a lot of key seniors from last year’s season. I hope to have a winning record and make it to the PAC-10 final four and have a shot at making it into districts.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my high school coach, Aamina Thornton, and my high school teammates. I would also like to thank my Dynamite coaches, Maureen Burger, Ali Allen, and Laurie Markle. A HUGE thank you to my Dynamite 2016 team, I wouldn’t be the player I am today without the girls on my team. I would also like to give a quick thank you to my 9th grade soccer coach, Jason Short, for teaching me what it means to be a dedicated, hard working student-athlete. Lastly, a big thank you to my family for supporting me through all the seasons and this whole process.”
