What has soccer taught you that you have been able to apply in everyday life?To play at a high level you must be very disciplined, hardworking and dedicated to the craft. All of these are qualities that carry over into real life and have helped mold me into a better person.
What was your Lynn soccer experience like?Playing at Lynn was one of the best experiences of my life, both on and off the field. I had an opportunity to play a very high level of soccer in front of a lot of family and friends. I matured as a player and a person and developed my game to a level that allowed me to pursue a career after college.
What was your most memorable moment at Lynn?For my first full season at Lynn (fall 2009) we started 10-0 and secured the #1 ranking in the country. Being the captain of a team that achieved that goal was truly a special feeling.
What advice would you give to incoming freshman at Lynn?As good of a time as you can have just by being at Lynn and in South Florida, it is that much better when you are part of a very successful team. Your time off and the offseason becomes that much better and you get to share it with a good group of guys. So, put the work in first and then great experiences will follow.
