Why did you decide to come to Cal?
"Athletically, when I was offered a position on the team, my age group coach told me I had to go train with Nort. If I wanted to get better, both he and I knew Cal was the way to go. Academically, Cal was ranked considerably higher above all the other schools I considered. Bar none, Cal had it all."

What do you plan to accomplish and achieve while at Cal?
"I hope to walk away from this team knowing that I've preformed to the best of my abilities, and helped the team be as great as I know it can be. When I graduate, I know I'll walking away from Cal with an invaluable education, some amazing memories, and a great, diverse group of friends."
