Tell the story of how you got to Rhodes College.
All of my college choices in high school were centered on playing football, and I never really gave much thought to Rhodes until the football coach offered me a chance to play. Then once he informed me of how well-respected Rhodes was academically across the nation, I knew I could not pass up the opportunity.
How have you changed since beginning your studies at Rhodes College?
Rhodes has altered my perception of the world in a very positive manner. I have developed a habit of assessing situations from multiple angles, both academically and culturally, in order to find the best solution.
How has being a part of athletics shaped your time at Rhodes?
It has thoroughly increased my time-management skills, and it has reminded me of how fortunate I am just to have the ability to be a part of an organization that is bigger than me.
