Why did you choose Shenandoah? I chose Shenandoah because I wanted to get an education while competing for a baseball national championship.
Favorite Class and Professor: American Foreign Policy with Dr. Eric Leonard
What do you like most about playing sports at SU? How we take care of business. From our team meetings to workouts, from conditioning to on field practice we get after it and do everything with a purpose and a first class manner.
Favorite thing to do in Winchester: Eat at non-chain restaurants such as Bonnie Blue, The Country Store, The Paper Mill, and Union Jacks, even though the way to my heart is through Chick-fil-A.
Favorite SU Athletics Memory: Hitting my first career homerun which was a grandslam against Cortland State who was ranked #8 in the nation. This was all during the blizzard that was coming through Winchester during the game.
What has playing athletics at SU meant to you? Purpose... Why should you one do something (anything in life)? There should be purpose. If you do something be the best at it. When on does something to "just do it" or "idk why I do it" then an inadequate job will be done. Playing baseball at SU has taught me to do anything in life with a purpose, i.e. baseball, school work, cutting the grass, waking out of bed.
Post-Graduate Plans: Law enforcement on the federal level hopefully FBI, DEA, ATF, NCIS, ICE, or my dream job Secret Service Presidential Detail. If not then state police then local police. If all that fails I will attempt to take out a loan to start my own bar.
Nobody knows that I... In high school my senior year I was the mascot. I decided to do that to get into football games free but it turned out to be a lot of fun so I did it for football games, volleyball games, basketball games and wrestling matches.
