Why did you choose High Point? “Along with being one of the premier up-and-coming Liberal Arts Universities in the country, High Point has everything a student athlete like myself could want.
“The campus and facilities are the best in the country, and at High Point it’s not only about becoming the best person you can be on and off the field, but becoming a leader and striving to do the best you can in every facet of your life.
“Coach (Jon) Torpey and his staff, Coaches (Pat) Tracey, (Michael) Phipps, and (Ron) Garling, as well as the players, made me and my family feel at home. I feel as though I will fit in perfectly with what’s going on at High Point and it’s definitely the place I can see myself being apart of for the rest of my life.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next season? “We have lost many great players, but we will continue to be the best program in the country, and compete with the other top programs. We have phenomenal senior and junior classes. The underclassman are working hard and they are very good. I believe we can make it back to Unitas Stadium in May for our third season in a row and come out with a Championship.”
Additional comments: “I’d like to thank God, my parents, and my family for being there for me always, my MLC coaches Mickey Matthews, Chris Walker, and Chris McGovern for doing everything they have done for me throughout the recruiting process, and my CHC coach Brian Kelly for his help throughout everything as well.”
