Why did you choose Rowan? “I chose Rowan because I felt really comfortable there, and it is a very academical diverse and competitive school. My official visit with Coach (Lindsay) Delaney influenced my decision as well because of her competitive desire, and coaching style. The team is like a family and I am really looking forward to being a part of that.”
Outlook for your High School team? “Last year we lost several, three and four year varsity starters, which has opened up several positions on our field. This year we are a completely new team with a lot of potential. Our goal is to really capitalize on teamwork which will allow us to make it farther in the playoffs this year.”
Additional Comments: “I’d like to thank my parents, teammates and coaches for pushing me past my limits everyday. They’ve taught me that no matter hard I go, I can always go harder which has made me into the athlete I am today.”
