Why is this important to you?   

This is important to me because in life and in sports you cannot do anything all by yourself.

Favorite Scripture verse:     

John 3:16 - For God so loved the world that He gave his only Son so that those who believe in Him might not perish, but have eternal life.” 

What else should we know about you?      

Everything started when I was preparing for Confirmation. One of the requirements for my confirmation was that I had to attend a retreat – there were two options. One of the options was a retreat during the school year, and of course, my hockey season. I could not attend that because I was in a tournament, but that was all part of God’s plan for me. Instead of that retreat, it was mandatory that I attended the “Steubenville South” retreat. I didn’t know what to expect, but it changed my life forever. It lit me on fire!

Since then I brought God into everything – even my sports. It started out as just me praying after my games for my travel team. Then my brother and I after our high school games – despite being mocked by our teammates (high school). As for my travel team, the post-game prayer has expanded to two players, then four, then my whole team and even another team! It has also expanded to a pre-game prayer and has contributed to our 15-1-0 season and out-scoring our opponents 112-16.
