WHY SANTA CLARA?
"I chose Santa Clara because I really loved the coaching staff and the guys on the team. How they play fits my style, and the program has a sense of urgency to win. Coming from (ultra successful) De La Salle, that's what I like. I researched and visited a lot of schools and talked to a number of coaches. I asked players how they liked their program. Santa Clara kept coming out on top every time I made a comparison. I also want to thank my parents for all the support they've given to me, with all the driving and flying to games and camps. As a player at De La Salle, I have really learned the game, how to get in position and how to play hard. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to attend De La Salle and play for Coach Allocco. I want to also thank him and all the staff at De La Salle."
