“I am incredibly fortunate to be apart of the Harvard family. Harvard provides, arguably, the best environment to grow as a student-athlete in the world. When I was on campus I felt at home, and the guys on the team have brought me in like one of their own. Along with the guys, Coach Tyrrell and Pitter will continually push me to new heights as an athlete and help me grow to become a better person. I can not wait to see what the future holds. Thanks to everyone who has been with me along the way.” [sic]
