Years Attending Hampden-Sydney
Recruiting Consultant with Wells Fargo and Richmond Strikers Soccer Coach
Why did you choose Hampden-Sydney?
"I chose H-SC because of the strong academic history, the opportunity to play soccer at the collegiate level, and to be an immediate contributor to the program."
What are your greatest memories at Hampden-Sydney?
"I could go on all day, but obviously soccer and the overall sense of community shared among students, teammates, and faculty will always come to mind. Athletically, I will remember being part of the first recruited class under Coach Josh Laux and leading the team to an 11-win season, earning the No. 2 seed in the ODAC Tournament in 2007."
How has H-SC helped you in your life after college?
"H-SC provided me with a well-rounded education and strong foundation in leadership, ethics, written/verbal communication, and integrity that I use, and will continue to use in each business or personal relationship."
What advice would you give to the current Hampden-Sydney men's soccer team?
"First off, cherish your time on the hill! One day you will find yourself nine years out of H-SC, like me, wondering where the time went. Also, approach each day with a positive attitude and view each day and as an opportunity to better yourself from an athletic, academic, and personal standpoint. Last but not least, bring home the ODAC Title … We are due!!"
