Q: How do you feel about being inducted into the athletics hall of fame?

A: It feels surreal. I feel extremely blessed and excited to celebrate. I love being a part of Naperville Central so it’s really special to me.

Q: Were there any lessons you learned from your career that you’d like to share with the students today?

A: My friendships and relationships are the most important takeaway from participating in athletics at Central, and I feel that that was the most important part of my career.

Q: What was the highlight of your experience at Central?

A: We had an exciting game against Benet senior year, where the only way to [win] was to score a goal, so I just shot backhand and scored a goal. 

Q: What message or advice do you have for our current students?

A: How you do one thing is how you do everything. You need to excel in both academics and athletics, [and] you’re going to have to work really hard. Just remember all the good experiences you had, all the fun you had, and find joy in everyday work.
