Why I Chose Yale:
I chose Yale University because of its incredible mix of academics and athletics. The first time I visited campus and met Coach Jim Henry, I knew it was the perfect place for me. The entire team and coaching staff were so welcoming. I can't wait to spend the next four years with them as a Bulldog! Boola Boola!!!
