It just didn’t work out and It just never felt home to me. It was disappointing but the experience created a huge chip on my shoulder. I decided to transfer after one semester to Waynesburg.

Tell me about your biggest adversity in life and how you’ve dealt with or overcome it?

• Definitely when I broke my arm in our scrimmage against Frostburg two years ago. Had to undergo 4 surgeries, was in the hospital for a week, and missed the entire season, it was a really painful experience. At the time of the injury, I felt I let my teammates, coaches, and family down. I missed being out on the field with my teammates it hurt bad. However, going through the injury was the best thing that ever happened to me it humbled me beyond belief. It also taught me that whatever you love can be taken away from you in an instant and never to take it for granted. I worked extremely rehabbing my arm and working the entire offseason to make a comeback. One quote I found helped me keep a positive mindset throughout the process “Never let a stumble in the road be the end of the journey.”

• My teammate Brad Grinnen was a great player and an even better teammate worked harder than anybody I know. Also one of my brother’s friends who passed away last year. He treated me like a brother and always supported me and came to my games something I will never forget.
