At the end of my junior year in high school, my youth minister gave me a copy of the Newman Guide, because he knew I was looking for a Catholic college. As I was flipping through the pages, I saw Walsh and found out that they had just added an Exercise Science major, which I was interested in. I filled out the early application and was really excited to come and play football, as the coaches had reached out to recruit me.
