Why did you pick this college?

“I always wanted to attend a college located in the city but had the feel of a more suburban setting. Manhattan College provides both for me. Manhattan graduates attend excellent graduate schools and are recruited by top employers. Coach Weber’s program and philosophy are a great fit for me and I cannot wait to play as a Manhattan Jasper. “

What advice would you give to younger Blast players beginning the recruiting process?

“Listen to the advice of the Philly Blast coaches. Also, take initiative in contacting college coaches, don’t wait for them to contact you. Don’t see the recruiting process as a stressful thing rather have fun with it. Everything will work out in your best interest. “

What’s your favorite part of playing for Blast?

“The hands on training and advice I received from Josie; all the coaches are truly excellent. The playing atmosphere is competitive while also being relaxed and fun. Everyone on my team is very supportive of one another and we always find a way to have fun.“
