About Athlete

I began playing rugby at about 8 years old and since then it has become my greatest passion. I grew up around the Freeport Rugby Club, watching my dad play, playing on the youth teams, helping with the senior team and finally playing on the senior team. Rugby has taught me so many things other than skills, such as the benefits of hard-work, as well as respect. Rugby is definitely something I want to continue playing throughout my life.

What makes you different?

My decision making, kicking ability and my fearlessness make me different on the rugby field. Constantly I have faced competition who are much older and bigger than me, however, I never let this get to my head and I just continued to play my game. I also love to bring my teammates up and make sure they always keep their head up.

Why do you want to compete in college?

I want to compete in college to take my rugby skills to the next level. I want to continue doing what I love while getting a great education. Rugby is my passion and I want to continue playing for as long as possible.

College Goals?

I want to take my rugby skills to the highest possible level in a good rugby program, as well as get a great education in a good school. I hope to develop the skills to be successful in life while in college, whether that be in class or on the rugby pitch.

Anything else we should know?

I hope to be successful and happy in life. I want to continue to play rugby throughout my life at the highest level possible.
