DJ: My goal this year is to be the WCC Defensive Player of the Year, and also for the team to win the conference tournament.

SCB: Has being an EyeBronco reporter contributed to your Santa Clara career? How?

DJ: Yes it has. It has given me an opportunity to branch out to other sports and build relationships with other student-athletes, which made my group of support even larger.
