On signing to throw at SMWC...

"I'm definitely looking forward to joining the SMWC track and field team. Coach Whit and Coach Rayman have been more than helpful in the recruiting process, and I thank them for taking a chance on me. Now all that's left to do is is finish my senior season with a bang. I would like to thank my parents for supporting me unconditionally, and my siblings for the sacrifices they've made. I would also like to thank Shannon Montgomery, my throws coach since 7th grade, for building me into the thrower I am today. I couldn't have made it this far without everyone's help. Thank you."
