Favorite building on campus?

Stark, especially with the new renovations.

Hopes for this season as a Colonel?

Win the MAC Championship.

When/Why did you first begin playing?

I started playing when I was 5. My parents weren’t going to let me sit around, so they made me choose a sport and I chose soccer because my brother played. Never looked back since.

Coke or Pepsi?

Make it a Cherry Vanilla Pepsi and I’m sold.

Most influential person in your life?

My soccer coach growing up. He always pushed us to do and be our best on and off the field. He taught me many lessons that are valuable in all aspects of life.

Anyone to give a shout-out to?

I’d like to give a shout-out to my parents for traveling to every game, home or away, and for the love and support no matter what. I wouldn’t be where I am today without them. All the guys on the team since we’re winning the MAC this year and there’s no one that can stop us from achieving our goals. Lastly, I’d like to give a shout-out to my friends Aislinn, Marisa, Bri, Julie (and many more) and my girlfriend Kae for all the love and support.
