What is your favorite athletic memory as a Tatnall Hornet?
My favorite memory was swimming in my first individual state's event in my sophomore year.

What is the most important lesson playing sports at Tatnall taught you?
The most important lesson I have learned is the value of playing as a team. Especially in soccer, there is no way to win, without a team effort.

What was the biggest difficulty you faced in your athletic career, and how did you overcome it?
The biggest difficulty I have faced was taking off the last second from my 100 backstroke time to qualify for States. To accomplish this I attended several morning practices to work on my form.

If you could say one thing to younger Hornet athletes, what would it be?
Focus on building your team dynamic. There is no "I" in team.

Who is a teammate or coach you would like to spotlight, and how did they help you as a Tatnall athlete? 
I would like to spotlight Mr. Gross. After our Sophomore swimming season, both of our coaches left. Luckily, he came in as our new Assistant Coach, and has been an invaluable asset of our team ever since.
