WHY DID YOU CHOOSE LOUISVILLE?  “When I first stepped on campus at Louisville it just felt right. I have met some great coaches during this recruiting process and have seen some great universities, but when I stepped on Louisville’s field I could see myself playing there, in that uniform and with those coaches by my side. They have a great facility and staff. I am also very competitive and I know Coach Sowry will push me to my best and I am up for the challenge.”

ANYONE YOU WOULD LIKE TO THANK?  “I would first like to thank my parents for supporting me at all my games, practices and driving me to all my events, and for making me the person I am today. I couldn’t have done it without them. Secondly, all my coaches, especially Brian Hope, for making me the player I am today. I don’t think I would have improved as much as I have over the past couple of years.”
