Where are you from? Who introduced you to HBCUs?*



Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*



What is the story of your "experience" at Your HBCU given its heralded status as a stellar and prestigious institution?*



"First time" experiences at your HBCU?*



Who are the professors that have impacted your life in and out of the classroom? How did they do that?*

My advice to incoming athletes would be to manage your time very wisely so that your grades don’t suffer because of the time consuming extra curricular activity that is college sports. You are often going to have to practice twice a day so you need to make time for your studies as well. Also work with your athletic director and professors to make sure everyone is on the same page and they know that you are a student-athlete. There will be times that you’ll have to travel on test day or when homework is due so that info will be very valuable to your profs.


What sports do/did you play at your HBCU? What positions?

I turned down scholarships to other D2 schools to play soccer at Morehouse from 2000 until 2003 when the program was unfortunately cut while I was studying abroad. During my time on the team I was moved from my natural position of forward to right midfielder


During my third season I was a captain and received the midfielder of the year award.
