My Favorite Sports Memory is…..my entire 2016-2017 year invested at Rowan College of Gloucester County. I had the honor, privilege, and opportunity to play for Rob Valli, Greg Chew, Kevin Gunter, and TJ McKinney there. As well as being a part of a group of young guys that was so much more than a team, and everything we did there was for something that is so much bigger than oneself. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to experience everything I did from the grind of the fall season to the pain I felt after our World Series loss as the #1 team in the Nation.
