How old were you when you started playing rugby?

I started playing rugby when I was a senior in high school.

Who or what inspired you to compete in rugby?

My friends convinced me to play rugby since I already played football with them.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

I see myself beginning a career in engineering and playing for a men’s rugby team.

What do you do outside of rugby and school?

I enjoy working out and hanging out with my friends.

Do you have any advice for freshmen attempting to join the team?

My advice would be to show up to as many practices as you can and to really focus on improvement.  If you do this, you will no doubt gain a greater knowledge of the game and be a better rugby player.
