I have been extremely impressed with the Beloit College community and I am excited to come back to Wisconsin to become a part of it. It is my goal to consistently recruit high quality student-athletes and help each player in our program reach their full potential. I would love to bring more local talent and expand other recruiting bases here at Beloit. I am very excited to be a part of this community.”
