My favorite part about competing for Brandeis, other than my teammates, is: the tradition and team environment. Brandeis students strive to embody that tradition all the time.
The most important thing I have learned from Coach Meehan is: It is up to you to make the most of the opportunities you are given.
I chose Brandeis because: The highly competitive academic and athletic environment. Also I really wanted to go to a university where my family would be able to come watch my games.
My favorite professional athlete is, and why: Willie Mays and Roberto Clemente. Growing up my father always told me those were the guys I should strive to emulate on and off the field.
