Who is your funniest teammate and why?
Jake Rowe; He always found a way to bring the whole team to life when we needed it most, and at the right times.
Most memorable game or athletic event:
Junior Season, September 22 (my birthday), away against Johnson and Wales University. We traveled to JWU to play them at home, not favored to win, coming off of back to back hard games, we went into JWU hopeful. Four minutes into the game, I scored, putting the team up 1-0. Even though we did not win this game, this moment, in the time that it was for us as a team and for myself, was something I will never forget.
What is the greatest lesson you've learned from being a student-athlete?
Patience is everything.
