I know I made the right choice going to Adelphi.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “My team this year is in one of the toughest conferences on long island, I feel like we can hold our own. We have a lot of up-coming players that can make an impact. The rest of the seniors and myself have to take them under our wing and get them ready to play this year. We are all tough kids and we don’t give up no matter what the score is we just have to believe in our team this year.”
Additional comments: “I have to thank my parents for putting all the time in over the years to help me improve my game and all the money spent on camps and travel teams, they never stopped believing in me. I would also like to thank my high school coaches for helping me and giving me the opportunity. Lastly I’d like to thank my travel team coach, he was always tough on me and wouldn’t let me give up and wouldn’t give up on me until I was playing my best.”
