What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose school? “On the trip out there, I was so impressed with the school, the people, and the virtues of Notre Dame. On top of it being a great school academically, the team and coaching staff is great. Everyone genuinely cares about each other, and I’m very excited to be a part of the program.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “We have a strong and tight senior class. We graduated 15 seniors last year, but we are ready to reload some of those positions. I know everyone’s going to pull through, and we’ll have a great year. We’ll be a contender for leagues, counties, and States.”
Other comments: “I definitely want to first thank my parents; they’ve supported me through the whole process and have always been great. Also, my coaches for Mahwah High, Brian Callanan and Ernie Yenco. Lastly, I want to thank Ken Miller of the Long Island Sting. Without them, none of this would have been possible.”
