What is your most memorable moment in your playing career at Georgetown?
“My most memorable moment in my playing career at Georgetown is the 2012 BIG EAST Championships. We had lost the previous year in the semifinals. This time, we scored at the very end of the game to tie and we won in penalty kicks. Playing in a BIG EAST Final for the first time was a big step for our program. Unfortunately, we lost in the final at the last minute, but I still have very fond memories of that 2012 season.”
