Q: Tell us about your college career and what the recruiting process was like. Why did you choose Merrimack?

A:   The recruiting process that I experienced out of high school before committing to Merrimack College is one of the reasons I play with a chip on my shoulder and work so hard to this very day. I led my high school to a Division I State Championship, and I was named Offensive Player of the Year in Massachusetts. Despite my excellent high school career, I felt like I was harshly under-recruited because of my size and I took that very personally. I was recruited by three Division II schools in the Northeast-10 Conference: Merrimack College, Stonehill College, and Assumption College. I had preferred walk on spots from the University of New Hampshire, Sacred Heart University, and Central Connecticut State University. I ultimately chose Merrimack College because I had a great connection with the Head Coach Dan Curran, and the scholarship that he offered me would benefit my family the most. I also knew that Merrimack’s offense was highly dependent on the slot receiver. I felt like I would fit into their offensive scheme well, and I wanted the pressure of being the guy that the offense depended on most in crucial situations. That turned out to be true in many games and committing to Merrimack College was a great decision. I finished my career as the 3rdbest receiver in school history and was part of many great team wins. My senior season I was selected to the First Team All-Conference and I lead the league in both receptions and receiving yards per game. I was also selected to the All-Region Team and I was invited to play in the FCS National Bowl in Daytona Beach.
