When and how did you start playing rugby?
As a college sophomore, I realized that I needed an athletic outlet that was more intense than intramural basketball. The rugby team practiced outside my dorm, so I asked if I could practice with them. After the first hit, I was hooked!
What is the best thing about being a USA pool player?
The best thing about being a pool player is the opportunity to play high level rugby. My coaches and teammates consistently challenge me to play at my best and then improve upon it, making the game all the more intense, beautiful, and fun.
What does representing your country mean to you?
As a proud ambassador of my country, wearing a US jersey means standing tall, shaking hands, and hitting really hard. In this I express my gratitude for the family, friends, teammates, and compatriots who have stood with me throughout this journey.
