Why did you choose Coker? The amazing food and small classes
What is your best memory at Coker (athletic related)? Winning the 200m sprint to the finish line against a Francis Marion runner during my second 8K race would have to be my most memorable moment thus far.
What is your best memory at Coker (non-athletic related)? Going to the U.S. National Whitewater Center in Charlotte during Coker Connection
Which athletic team would you play on at Coker other than your own? I would play soccer. Never actually played it before, but it seems like a really fun and intense sport.

Do you have a nickname? If so, how did you get it? Bruce Leroy. I got the name because I have done mixed martial arts for a few years, and I love all things Bruce Lee.
One word that describes you: Laidback
