What will you major in/study? Criminal justice
Why did you choose Wagner? “Wagner gives me the opportunity to succeed both academically due to its prestige, and athletically with Coach (Matt) Poskay and the new staff. The expectations are set high. With a winnable conference I hope to help the team succeed.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “We are a relatively new team due to the loss of many seniors last year, but between the seniors and juniors we have this year the chemistry is already building. With a strong defense that will lead the way this year, the expectations of a county championship are still the main goal as well as to continue the tradition of excellence at Farmingdale.”
