Q – At what age did you start playing hockey and who/what pushed you try and ultimately stick with the game?

A-  I started playing hockey at 3 and kept going because I always wanted to prove that I’m better than my brother.

Q – Is their one particular play, goal, hit, save, etc…that really stands out over your playing career?

A – Playing in the state semifinals at Yale is a game that I’ll never forget. Seeing all of my fellow students that came to watch made the game feel surreal.

Q  -Hockey is one of the more “team” based sports. What is the dynamic like to be a part of that atmosphere? (in the locker room, on the bus, practice, etc…)

A – You get to become really close with all of the guys and the team will actually turn into a family and everyone has each other’s backs and we would all go to war for and with each other.

Q – As a freshmen, what is the biggest adjustment to playing on the college level?

A – Adjusting to the faster pace and the bigger players is definitely going to be an adjustment for me. I came to Rider because of the smaller class size and the community feeling and I wanted to play hockey because I knew it was an easy way to make 24 friends as soon as I got to school

Q – Some hockey players are known to be very superstitious; do you have any superstitions, pre-game during, etc…?

A – Before every game I have to get ready to leave for the rink an hour before and then sit in my room listening to music for the half hour before I leave for the rink.

Q – Favorite Team?

A – New York Rangers

Q – Favorite Player?

A – Derek Stepan

Q – Pre-Game Meal?

A – Bagel with peanut butter and an apple

Q – What type of music, if any, do you listen to before a game?

A -Rap and EDM

Q – What is the one piece of equipment you are most picky about?

A – My jersey has to stay on a hanger before games and completely untucked during games
