Why did you choose school?
“Lehigh is a team that, with good recruiting classes in my year, and the age above, has a lot of potential. Coach (Kevin) Cassese really made me feel like Lehigh was the right fit for me academically and athletically. I am looking forward to playing under Coach Cassese in the Patriot League and going up against some of the best teams in the country all season long.”
