What is your favorite athletic memory as a Tatnall Hornet?
Winning the DISC league my sophomore year for lacrosse and getting hype with the boys.

What is the most important lesson playing sports at Tatnall taught you?
Even when times suck, just push through, and you’ll come out better than when you started.

What was the biggest difficulty you faced in your athletic career, and how did you overcome it?
The biggest difficulty I faced was adjusting to the level of play of varsity high school sports. I overcame this by working hard every day and using the support of the upperclassmen to build myself into the player I am today.

If you could say one thing to younger Hornet athletes, what would it be?
At Tatnall, your team is your family, and the bonds you form with your teammates are life changing.

Who is a teammate or coach you would like to spotlight, and how did they help you as a Tatnall athlete? 
A coach I have to spotlight would definitely be Cesidio Colasante, who was my soccer coach my first year at Tatnall. Although he was a really tough coach, he brought me into Tatnall and gave me a wake up call to what high school sports are like with his rigorous trainings all season. In the end, I came out in the best shape I’ve ever been, and that season helped me be able to compete at the level required for the rest of my high school career.
