Why did you pick this college?

I chose this college because the athletic facilties were a dream. The coaches and team were so very welcoming, it just felt like home.

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

Take it slow. Don’t rush at your first opportunity when it comes to the door. Coaches evaluate all through the fall too so it would be better to explore your options throughout the fall season. Visit as many campuses as possible, you never want to miss a campus that you could fall in love with.

What’s your favorite part of playing for Blast?

The coaching staff makes us work so hard to achieve our goals. I’ve made a ton of new friends playing Philly Blast and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

What other colleges were you considering?

Temple, Duquesne, Pitt, VCU, Bryant, UMBC
