Why did you choose Haverford?
I chose Haverford because of the unique combination of athletics and academics. I wanted a place that could challenge me not only academically but also athletically. I also wanted a school that would create an environment that would allow me to grow as a person. Haverford was the ideal place for me to achieve these goals. 

What is your favorite team experience?
My favorite team experience was our away victory over Washington College this past season. They were leading late and then we made a final run to push us over the top. It was a great victory over a raucous crowd and allowed us to head into winter break feeling really confident. 

Why did you choose to play a sport in college?
Basketball has always been a passion of mine. I really enjoyed the mental and physical challenges that basketball brings. I wanted to continue to challenge myself in college and thought that playing a sport would be an ideal solution. 

What does being a student-athlete mean to you?
Being a student-athlete to me means that I get to do what I love. I get to learn new things every day which allows me to improve mentally. It also means that I get to come in to the GIAC every day and compete with great people in order to help improve the athletic community at Haverford. 

What makes Haverford unique?
Haverford combines high level academics with high level athletics and a close knit sense of community. These characteristics, coupled with the Honor Code, give Haverford's students a truly unique college experience.
