It is great. This group is a great group of guys, especially the younger guys. This team is going to be very good.

Winning the Monarch Classic was a memorable moment. We struggled the two games before that but we turned it around and ending up beating two very good teams in Susquehanna and Central Penn.

10. Being a Junior, do you feel you have a certain role on the team? If so, what is that?
I feel like i have to be a leader out there, being older than some of the other guys. It kind of just comes naturally with age, these guys look up to you, so you have to set a good example.
