Is there anything else you would like to share? "My parents for always believing in me, and being on the sidelines for every game win or lose. My T3 Coaches Kelly Knapp and Chris Raichle. A special thank you to my personal goalie coaches, Evan Mager and Tyler Ornstein... and a shoutout to Coach Tom Reilly for telling my parents “I had something special in 5th grade”."
