What will you major in/study? International Relations
Why did you choose school? “I chose West Point because it will provide me with the opportunity to serve my country, receive a top-notch education, and play for a new program at a school that is deeply-rooted in tradition. The school spirit is contagious and has a strong community and sense of camaraderie. The coaching staff is amazing and I can’t wait to attend such a historic school. GO ARMY! BEAT NAVY!”
Outlook for your High School team? “Coming off of a great season, we lost a group of talented seniors; however the underclassmen are ready to step up while the juniors and seniors this year will provide experience and leadership. We are ready to tear it up in the Central League!”
