As a student-athlete at Rensselaer, RPI Football has played a tremendous role in my time here. It has allowed me to represent RPI on the playing field while achieving my goals in all areas of my life off the field. I have had the opportunity to start my Sophomore, Junior, and Senior seasons as the kicker. As a team, we were the 2015 & 2017 Liberty League Champions and played in the NCAA playoffs, our 5th time in program history. As a part of the team, I have been involved with helping students at Troy School 2 broaden their interest in STEM subjects through games and activities, reading books and stories to children at Troy School 14, as well as hosting a Bone Marrow Registration Drive for The Andy Talley Bone Marrow Foundation.
I have also been involved in creating a student-run volunteer group called Students for Service. As a part of Students for Service, I volunteer on a weekly basis at Joseph’s House, a local Troy homeless shelter. Some other events we have organized include helping children with their homework at the Troy Boy’s & Girls Club, preparing food at Unity House, and volunteering at the Regional Food Bank in Latham.
Along with football and Students for Service, I have been a Captain of the RPI Fellowship of Christian Athletes. FCA gas given me an opportunity to help other grow stronger in their faith, as I have in mine through my four years at RPI.
