What will you major in/study
? Considering Communications or Business

Why did you choose the school? “I am excited about Jacksonville’s potential, since it just started its program a couple years ago. The coaching staff really impressed me, especially when I went down there. It’s an up-and-coming team and university – and the weather doesn’t hurt either!”

What is your HS team’s outlook for next season? “We didn’t lose too many seniors, so we’re pretty much the same team. I think with all our potential we could make it pretty far and I think we are a potential contender for states.”

Other comments: “I like to thank coach Wendy (Landry of Unionville) for believing in me and getting me to play to a high potential, even as a freshman. I’d like to thank coach Jaime Deniken; she has dedicated so much time & energy to our 2015 Spirit team and she pushed me to do my best on and off the field. I’d like to thank my parents for always being there and supporting me no matter what decision I made – and even before I had to make a decision.”
