What will you major in/study? Education
Why did you choose Springfield? “It was the right fit; I will have an opportunity to play right away and I just really enjoyed the coaching staff (head coach is Keith Bugbee).”
What is your HS team’s outlook for the season? “We should be better than last year. We have a very midfield-oriented team and a young defense, but we should definitely be able to compete this year.”
Additional comments: “I want to thank (Westhampton Beach) head coach (Ralph) Peters and coach Ryan Wellner (former Stony Brook assistant and now an assistant at Navy); and thanks to my dad for pushing me and helping me find the right school.”
