"Making the decision to come to UMass has been the best one of my life so far. I have had such a fantastic student-athlete experience, from the professors I have had the opportunity to learn from and the coaches who have allowed me to continue to play the game I love. With the UMass network and resources I have available to me, I know that UMass will have ultimately served as the launching pad for what is to come in my life after UMass”.
