Why did you choose Coker? Coker showed me a great deal of opportunities that were going to be present for me if I attended the school. Also, my coach brought the picture of family when he was recruiting me to join the Coker Men’s Lacrosse team. This made me more comfortable when choosing coker.
What is your best memory at Coker (athletic related)? My best athletic memory would be scoring my first collegiate goal with my left hand against Shorter University. It was the first time I ever shot with my left hand in practice or a game.
What is your best memory at Coker (non-athletic related)? My first time in the Cobra Den.
Which athletic team would you play on at Coker other than your own? If I had the opportunity to play another sport it would be men’s basketball. In my opinion, basketball is the reason I am the person I am today. I’ve been playing since I was in 5th grade.
