Have you selected a college yet?
I'm going to Youngstown State. I (verbally) committed two weeks ago.
What stood out about Youngstown State from the other schools you considered?
They offered me money (partial scholarship). I chose them over Maryland and Robert Morris.
Has the coaching staff given you any idea as to what your role will be as a freshman?
The coach said I will play outfield-mid to start and push up to forward. He said it looks like I could start, yeah, and I can work my way up to the top.
Who has been your biggest role model?
My parents, because they took me to all my tournaments to make me reach where I'm at. I was on a Cup team so they had to take me to all my tournaments and practices.
What is one thing people may not know about me?
I used to be a cheerleader.
