“I am proud to announce that I will be finishing my swimming and academic career at the University of Tampa! To start off, I want to thank @gamecockswim for making me the man I am today. Thank you to my brothers for all the memories and bonds that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. To my coaches for giving me a chance when nobody else would. To my training partners. Raf, Tamas, Connor, Cody. You guys pushed me day in and day out to be the best swimmer I could be. To the day 1 goons. Rob, Frank, Ben, you are three of the funniest people I have ever met. And most of all, thank you to my brothers in Cypress Street. Luke, Alex, Dylan. My best friends. Thank you for every day, every moment. I love you guys to death. With that being said, I want to thank @utampa_swim for giving me the opportunity to swim under them and I can’t wait for the next chapter in my life. Good luck next season Gamecocks! I’ll always be cheering you guys on. Go Spartans and Go Gamecocks for life.”
