Tell us a little bit about your hometown.

I’m from Raleigh, North Carolina – lived there for most of my life – but I was originally born in New York, lived in New Jersey for about five years and actually in Southern California for about a year and a half. So I’ve moved around a little bit, but North Carolina is home.

What do you miss the most about home?

aybe the warm weather, at least for baseball. It still gets kind of cold down there, but it’s nice when it’s a little bit warmer. And the wind up here is much, much worse than it is in North Carolina. So probably just the weather in general, I would say.

Why Georgetown?

I really liked the city, and Georgetown is right in the middle of D.C. and [it was a] great academic opportunity, great school, and I got recruited for baseball and was given an opportunity to play . in my freshman year. It was kind of a no-brainer.

How is the team camaraderie like?

The team’s great. It’s a great group of guys and we get along really well and have a lot of fun together. It’s really enjoyable being around those guys, especially since we travel so much and play so much that you’re forced to be around them. So, it’s good that everybody meshes really well and has a good time.

Who is the team joker?

I’m not sure I could put it on one or two particular people, but I would say the junior class – my class – in general has a bunch of clowns. And now that I think of it, one guy stands out in my mind is Kelly Muir, senior class. He’s a funny kid; it’s tough to explain, but he’s very entertaining.

And what about Head Coach Pete Wilk? Can you tell us something about him that we wouldn’t normally know?

He’s actually a little bit of a joker himself. He likes to get on some of the players and poke fun at some of us when he gets the chance. And . if he jokes with you, you can kind of joke right back at him. . He can draw the line between [being a] coach when it’s time to be serious as opposed to just kidding around with you. He’s good at that.

Who is your favorite professional athlete?

I think I’d have to go with Derek Jeter. I’m a huge Yankees fan so I guess I’m biased, but he’s one of the better players that I’ve ever seen play as far as consistency and being one of the best at his position year in and year out.

What was your freshman dorm?

Village C West. .I was in a room on the 10th floor that had really high ceilings, so it made the room feel bigger than it actually was, so that was kind of cool. But I didn’t mind that there was a bathroom in the room. It was a good time.

If you could be good at any sport besides baseball, what would it be?

Oh, basketball, definitely. It’s always been baseball and basketball, the two sports I really loved. So if I could choose, it’d definitely be basketball.

What position would you play?

I guess guard or forward, with my height, but I like to choose so I guess guard would be the best position.

What do you like doing in your spare time?

That’s a good question. I guess play basketball. . My roommates and I also get into some pretty heated battles on Xbox 360 Call of Duty.

Booey’s or Wisey’s?

Wisey’s. Obviously they make a good sandwich . and the selection of drinks and candy, whatever you need. And it’s convenient.
