What will you major in/study? “Leaning towards secondary education.”

Why did you choose Hartford? “The campus is what I want in a school, a school that has my major and isn’t too big or small. I also really like how Coach (Peter) Lawrence runs his team, and the goals he has set are something to look forward to for the next four years.”

What is your HS team’s outlook for the season? “We have a heavy senior class this year, and guys have a lot of talent so for now our first goal is to win the league and get to the state playoffs. Coach (Ryan) Greer has really been pushing us in the off season to make sure we can really reach our full potential this season.”

Additional comments: “I want to thank my family, my parents played a huge role in getting me to tournaments and always being supportive; Coach (Bob) Ambler and Coach (Fred) Lomady who played a big role in making me the player I am now, and Coaches Randy McNeil and Ryan Greer for everything they’ve done.”
