My Greatest Supporters

My greatest supporters were my family.
All the sacrifices I had to make for rugby and school-- they know the deal.
To my family on my mom and pops side-- I thank y'all for holding it down back home. This one's for ALL of us.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

All 4 years of SMC Rugby. Not only did I grow as a rugby player, but in all aspects of life. This program done changed my life for the better. I'm truly humbled to have been apart of something so special. To my teammates past & present-- I appreciate y'all for being home away from home. We locked in 4L. To the coaches-- I'm forever grateful for your guidance and mentorship. I, thank you.

My Next Chapter

I want to see how far I can take this rugby gig, but if that doesn't work out I look forward to working towards my career as a juvenile probation officer. I look forward to working with the youth and getting them kids out the streets.
