Highlight: On fourth down during a High School football game, the opposing team blocked our punt which sent the ball into the air and right into my hands. I caught it and ran for a first down, which led us to score on the following drive and win the game!
Highlight: A college lacrosse night game where we were in double OT with about 5 seconds left. I assisted my teammate on the crease for the game-winning goal. It was an epic feeling winning that one
Watching County Clare win the All-Ireland Senior Championship Hurling Final in 2013. My first induction into this cultural sport celebrating with the most passionate fans far from home. The pride and joy carried across the Atlantic and it was magical.
Somewhere between fav and least fav.... getting up at 1am to stand in line for tickets to Michigan's Fab Five vs Christian Laettner and the Duke Blue Devils at Crisler Arena. Michigan ended up losing in OT (least fav) but Coach K ordered pizza for all the students that queued for hours in line before the game on a cold December morn (most fav).
Highlight: I played D2 Women’s soccer at Georgian Court University, and the jump in talent from high school/club to the collegiate level is grand and only those who earn their time, see the field. I eventually earned my spot on the field, after sitting the bench for my designated time, the big game against Philly U had come, we had never beat them in my years there. Two of team mates and good friends to this day play a set piece that left me with the finishing shot. Scoring on our top competitor made me so grateful for that spot on the field and every minute I was in those cleats. We won that game, and that season I went on to lead the conference in goals for a majority of the season. Perseverance is key in anything.
Highlight: My parents took me to watch game seven of the world series when I was seven years old. I remember standing on my seat to see the game winning run in the bottom of the 11th inning.
Career Highlight: Rallying a group of SPORTDOGs to spend a Friday night singing, dancing, and riding indoor bikes for 4 hours straight to raise funds for rare cancer research with Cycle for Survival!
