What is your most memorable moment in your playing career at Georgetown?

I grew up a Terrapin fan, and all of my life I told myself I was going to play soccer at UMD. It was literally my dream when I was younger to play for Maryland. To play against, and beat one of my favorite sports teams growing up was a special moment that I will never forget. I am now a Hoya and always will be. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”
What made you choose to come to Georgetown?
“I committed to Georgetown University for a variety of reasons. The education could not be turned down, the distance was perfect (I am a home body), and the program was getting better and better. In addition, I am a huge fan of the coaching staff. They are player’s coaches, and most importantly good people.”
