Why did you choose this school?
“The program there is amazing, so is the atmosphere and girls that I met. The coaches are very nice and understanding and try their best to do everything to make sure their girls are happy, healthy, and the best team they can possibly be. The school is great and so is the city around it. I love Pittsburgh, when I got there it just felt like the perfect fit for me.”

Outlook for 2017 season: “I hope to help lead my team at OJR to another PAC championship, to get get it back into districts and get further than just runner ups, and go all the way past the state quarterfinals and win it all! I am happy to be part of the OJR family the girls are nice and they all work hard while working together.”

People to thank: “I want to thank my old coach Kim Wenger, my trainer, Johnny Carlisle, at The Cage, who has made me better, faster, stronger; my mom who has been my coach on and off the field; my sister, Mallory, and my brother, Myles, who are my two biggest fans, and especially my dad who has been there every step of the way.”
