Why did you choose McDaniel? “McDaniel first reached out to me around the end of my junior year and said they would like me for a visit. It was one of my first official visits taken as a player and I was really excited about it. I went in the summer and really liked the campus and coaches. As I took more visits I felt that it was the one school really stuck out to me. The coach asked me back for an overnight and I gladly accepted. After going through other schools and seeing this one in action I knew this was the place for me. The guys on the team were really nice and they just treated me like family throughout the whole process, as if I had already said I’d be going there. When it came time to make a decision it was between McDaniel and one other school and I just had that gut feeling that this school will be great for me and I’ll be a great fit on this team. I became the first player on my travel team to go there which is very exciting and am overall very excited to say that I am committed to McDaniel College.”

HS team’s 2018 outlook: “Go above .500, and improve as a team and program for future kids who may want to play.”

Thank You: “Thanks to Coach Beneke, Coach Kupp, Coach Pogo, Coach Mayberry, Coach Manney, Coach Davis, Coach Arra, Mom, Dad, Colin, and Quinn.”

Other schools considered: Albright College, and Susquehanna University
