Favorite Quote

Always chase your dreams because the sky is not the limit when there are footprints on the moon. 

Why did you choose Shippensburg?  

I chose Shippensburg because it was a school that was close to home. Now that I am here, if I could do it all over again, I would have this be my first choice and my only choice.

What is your favorite thing Ship has to offer?

My coaches for football. They drive me to always be better than I was the day before. 

If you could give any one piece of advice to incoming students, what would it be? 

College can be fun, but remember your reason for coming. Do not get caught up in the fun and do not get so caught up in school where you have no life. Always find a balance in between having fun and being a student.
