During the PC men’s basketball season, I assist the sports information team at every home game and remotely for every away game. I write a comprehensive game recap for Friars.com and help with many game-day responsibilities.

My offseason responsibilities include writing the season outlook and editing team reference materials, such as the media guide and prospectus.

Kid Reporter (2017-18)

In 2017, I was selected as one of 15 students around the world for the one-year Kid Reporter program.
