Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
Personally, I wanted to get all region and all american. I was able to get all region but not all american. As a team to make the playoffs, which we came up just short of that.

Right now I’m training in Chanhassen and continuing to work on my footwork.

If any teams out there and wanting to get a guy that’ll do anything to help his team win, I’m your guy. I just need one shot.
