what will you major in/study? Elementary Education and Sports Management
Why did you choose Maryland? “I knew the minute I went to visit the campus I wanted to be a Terp. I fell in love with the coaches, the team and the campus. Everyone made me feel so welcome and special so I knew right away that was the right choice. I never really wanted to go far away from home so this is perfect!”
What is your HS team’s outlook for this season? “I think that we will be in the running for another State Championship. We have six Division I players returning and I believe that we will be stronger than ever. Being returning state champs, we will have a target on our back, but with hard work and determination we are capable of being a very successful team.”
Additional comments: “The reason I am where I am today is because of my parents and my M&D coach Scott Robinson. I can’t thank Coach Scott enough for giving me the opportunity and teaching me to be the player that I am today.”
