Describe the qualities that your program is looking for in a potential student-athlete?
When looking for potential student athletes I will look for students who seem well rounded.. Who are going to not only benefit this university athletically but also academically.. Someone who cares about the team aspect.. someone who is willing to work hard, make sacrifices and who buys in to what we are doing here.
Could you give us an example of a current or former player who exceeded your expectations, highlighting the reasons that player excelled?
We have a few student athletes who have exceeded my expectations.. Maintaining a 4.0 as well as becoming an All American swimmer and placing at the NCAA Division II meet but beyond that they are good people.. They work hard, do what they are told, care about the team and are really great leaders. To me, that is what makes me feel successful when someone can juggle it all and really shine.
