Previous School: Fieldston School
Hometown: New York, N.Y.
Coming from New York City the Middlebury Campus was exactly what I was hoping to see when I arrived on campus for the first time. The entire school was green, something I was not very used to. The athletic facility was first rate which was a dramatic step up from the facility I was accustomed to in high school. I knew this would be a great place to spend four years.
What is the one thing that makes Middlebury College a special place for you?
I think my friends make this place really special. There are a lot of good people in Middlebury and I have been fortunate enough to make friends with a bunch who are great friends. Coach Saward has also always put together a group of teammates who are incredible teammates and really mesh on and off the field. My friends both older and younger have been an incredible part of my college experience.
What is your best memory as a player at Middlebury College?
The best memory I have as a player at Middlebury College was while sitting on the bench my freshman year. On the 50th anniversary of Middlebury College Men’s Soccer we had an incredible comeback against Amherst that I will always remember. We were down two-zero with no more than 15 minutes left. We had a highly improbable comeback capped off by our freshman superstar Dave LaRocca. The comeback really showed what the Middlebury Soccer Program is all about. My second favorite though was when we did the same thing to Williams my junior year and I actually played.
What have you learned from your sport that you will use in your everyday life?
I have learned that the only way to achieve success is to work hard. The effort I put in will directly effect how good my performance will be.]]>
