Why did you choose Anna Maria College?  

It was the only college that felt like home to me and gave me the opportunity to play football. 

What are some of your favorite memories?  

My favorite memory would have to be giving back to the community through my work with the Academic Center Transition (ACT) Program in Worcester where I mentored students struggling with behavioral issues. Being able to go to the school and work with elementary students was a great experience. 

What was your greatest accomplishment during your four years?  

Winning the Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) championship with my team. 

What will you miss the most about Anna Maria?  

The thing I’ll miss most about Anna Maria is just being able to hang out with my friends in the dorm room. 

What are your plans for the future?  

In the future, I plan on becoming a high school/college Athletic Director. 

Any advice for the Class of 2027?  

Enjoy your time in college. Time flies so make sure you have fun.
