What made you choose Westminster?
I chose Westminster because of the small close family atmosphere. It first started with the basketball team but then after being a student here at Westminster I was able to see that the whole college is close. There is always someone there that would help you out in a time of need.

What has been the greatest part of your collegiate athletic career thus far?
I would say that the greatest part of my collegiate athletic career would be getting the experiences that I have been given. What I mean is I've met so many great people in my life and being a Westminster Titan has given me opportunities that I wouldn't have been able to do if not playing basketball.

What is your favorite basketball moment of all-time?
My favorite moment of all time would be playing W&J sophomore year needing to beat them for PAC standings and not only did we beat them but I was able to tie the record for most three pointers in a game.

Who was your favorite childhood athlete and why?
Allen Iverson, he was my favorite childhood athlete because he was one of the best point guards in the NBA while I was growing up, and he did have the best ball handling moves.

Do you have any talents or hobbies?
I can juggle, spin the ball on my finger and switch hands/fingers. But in reality basketball is my hobby!

What are your plans after graduation?
I plan on getting a Graduate Assistant position at another college or university in basketball. Hopefully that is where I begin my coaching career because one day I would love to be a college coach.

What advice do you have for your underclassmen teammates?
I would tell them to cherish every moment that they have with basketball because coming in as a freshman I would have never guessed that these four years would have gone as quickly as they did and I would give anything to relive these four years again. These years are the time of your life, so make them count and make your mark on Westminster.
