Why UT Tyler?: I went to McLennan College for my first two years of college because of the fantastic coach Vince Clark, and the reputation of the golf program. I decided to come to UT Tyler for the exact same reasons.  I appreciated the effort and attention Coach McConnell made to attract me to UT Tyler, so I was disappointed to see him leave.  After speaking with Coach McMunn I realized he was going to be a great fit here, and I made the right decision to be a Patriot.  I was just blown away on my first visit by the campus, golf facilities and coaching staff.
 
Goals for 2016: My first goal is to help the team be the best it can be.  My second goal is to qualify for every event the team competes in. My third goal is to help bring home a National Championship trophy, and with the returning talent along with the incoming talent I expect nothing less than our team competing for a 2017 Championship.
