What will you major in/study? Finance

Why did you choose Robert Morris? “As soon I stepped foot on RMU’s campus I knew it was the school for me. The coaches are very dedicated to the team and I knew it be a good fit for me. Coach (Andrew) McMinn and Coach (Jay) Sothoron made me feel at home and I meshed well with the guys on the team. I also like the proximity of RMU to downtown Pittsburgh.”

Outlook for your High School team? “We should make a state run. We have a couple of guys going D1 and I think this could really be our year. There are 3 seniors on our team heading to RMU as well.”

Additional Comments: “I would like to thank my High School coaches, Coach Bruce Garcia and Paul McGovern for guiding me through the recruiting process. I want to thank the rest of the East coaches as well as Jason Forte for getting us ready for each season.

“I would also like to thank my Twist coaches Brian Vetter and Steve Henze for all their coaching and keeping our team together. I appreciate all of the time you spent coaching me each season.

“I would like to thank Billy McKinney for all of his help. I would also like to thank my CBAA coaches(Brian Vetter, Steve Henze, Paul McGovern, Dan Brown, and Brad Ament) for making me the player I am today.

“Thanks to all of my friends and teammates throughout the years. Finally, I would like to thank my Mom and Dad for supporting me through all the years. My Dad, Mike Eveland, almost never missed a game or practice and he is always there for me. He is a huge part in helping me become the person I am today.”
