PBR MD:  What do you plan to major in at Richmond?

  • Business

PBR MD:  What are some of your goals you would like to achieve at Richmond?

  • Initially to adapt to the big change that college presents, but then to roll up my sleeves both academically and on the field to get the most out of my 4 years. I feel if I do that every day good things will happen.

PBR MD:  What are your plans this summer to get ready for school?

  • Continue to work hard in order to give myself the best chance at success at the next level.

PBR MD:  Are you playing summer baseball? If yes, who are you planning to play for?

  • Yes, DC Grays in the Cal Ripken Wood Bat League

PBR MD:  What other schools recruited you?

  • I had some conversations with other schools but I had my eye on Richmond very early in the process. Thankfully things fell into place and everything worked out.

PBR MD:  What was your favorite part about the recruiting process?

  • I think getting used to playing well when the pressure was on and coaches were watching was what I am most proud of. It's definitely nerve racking but it's an important part of the process and personal development. I believe that's a good experience that can carry over to things off the field as well.
