What is your favorite athletic memory as a Tatnall Hornet?
Advancing to the Quarterfinals of the State Tournament for the first time in around a decade.

What is the most important lesson playing sports at Tatnall taught you?
Leadership can take you or your group further than just relying on individual skill.

What was the biggest difficulty you faced in your athletic career, and how did you overcome it?
Putting football behind me. I overcame that by using my extra but still rare free time to really get ahead academically and be on a great start at the beginning of each school year.

If you could say one thing to younger Hornet athletes, what would it be?
Be willing to adapt to new situations and take on challenges nobody else will.

Who is a teammate or coach you would like to spotlight, and how did they help you as a Tatnall athlete? 
Bryce Scott '21. We were the only athletes to play Varsity Basketball at Tatnall all four years, so we push each other to continue to get better every time we play.
