My most memorable experience was in my last game in the fall with my showcase team I had just got back from surgery and wasn't having the best fall because I was still recovering. It was the last inning and we were tied and I hit a double off the fence to win the game for my team. It was a great way to go out.

Who has been the most influential person over your baseball career and why?

-- My goal is to make people notice that Towson can hang with the big boys. I want to help the program be a consistent CAA championship contender and gain national attention.
