What will you major in/study? Exercise Science
Why did you choose LMU? “I chose LMU because it is a big beautiful campus (including cows) with a small student body. The small classes are a good fit for me and what I was looking for. The apartment style living was also different from anywhere else. LMU takes its athletics very seriously which I like a lot. Lastly I will be playing for a new program on a team with other Long Island guys including my good friend and teammate from high school.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “I am optimistic about the season. Even though we have a challenging schedule with a young offensive team, I believe with the Senior leadership our team has, including myself, we can get the wins we need to earn a playoff spot.”
Thank You: “I want to thank my family, especially my parents for supporting me. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without them. Also I wanted to thank my first Varsity Coach, Coach Mollot for having the faith and belief in me enough to gain quality playing time in my freshman year. Coach Frank Padolecchia (PM Head Coach), Coach Chris Schiefer and Coach Wayne Oettinger for their knowledge and opportunity to grow as a player and person. Thanks to all my other coaches and teammates through the years. Lastly, Coach Matt Cleary for your support and for being a second father to me. Always saying what needs to be said and for the way you say it.”
Other schools considered: Lenoir-Rhyne, Belmont Abbey, DeSales, Oneonta, UNE
