Senior, Class of 2015 at Brookfield East High School
When/Why began rowing:
I took learn to row as a sophomore in high school but I didn't join the team until I was a junior. I joined because I knew some of the guys on the team and they wanted me to come down to a few practices.
Ultimate Frisbee has got to be #1 on my favorite workout list but getting some good strokes in on the water is a close second.
I have just received my application admission decision letter today and I am proud to say that I have been formally accepted into Gonzaga University. I plan on attending Gonzaga out in Spokane, WA and will row on their freshman team next fall.
Favorite aspect of rowing:
The state of mind rowing puts you in. When I'm on the water whether I'm racing or working on some technique, rowing has the ability to give my mind clarity and allows me to focus on the motion of rowing.
Favorite rowing season & why:
Summer season is my favorite because of short races and nice weather.
Interests/hobbies outside of practice:
I do enjoy playing basketball and am currently on a team. Outside of practice you can catch me on the basketball court balling with some friends.
Proudest accomplishment in your life so far:
Winning the Most Improved Athlete Award after fall season because I felt very accomplished.
Interesting fact about yourself:
I am a pretty good surfer and I have been to Costa Rica a few times to ride some waves.
