How did Groton prepare you to play in college?
The most important thing Groton taught me that prepared me for college athletics is the concept of time management. Balancing both school and a D1 schedule is extremely challenging, but Groton prepared me to be accountable and to hold myself to high standards both on and off the field.
What is your favorite memory from your Groton athletic career?
My favorite memory is our Friday Night Lights game against Rivers my senior year. It was Parents Weekend and easily the largest crowd I ever played in front of during my time at Groton. We certainly lived up to the hype that night and gave the whole community a show to be proud of.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to play a sport in college?
My advice first and foremost is to believe in yourself. The whole process can only begin when it is your dream that you are striving for. Surround yourself with people who have your best interest at heart, and make sure these people are able to be honest with you about the things you need to hear. Work hard and enjoy the journey and everything will work out the way it is meant to.
