  • The part of my game I've improved the most is: "my endurance."
  • My personal athletic goal at VWC is: "play as a freshman."
  • If I could spend the day with a famous person from any time period it would be: "the Notorious B.I.G. because he knew how to keep it real."
  • It's the year 2025 and: "I am living back home in Massachusetts coaching college lacrosse."
  • If I could possess one superpower it would be: "the ability to teleport so that I could save time."
