What do you enjoy most about your sport?
When transferring from Mohawk to Ilion my freshman year, I missed a lot of my old teammates but grew incredibly close to my new ones. Thankfully my senior year we are able to come together as one and that means the world to me because we are making history.
What is your most memorable athletic moment?
During my junior year we played Clinton. One of my best games in my career. I made over 20 saves but Clinton won 2-1. We left everything on the field that night.
