Why Did He Choose Greenville: "I chose Greenville College because of the authentic discipleship of the students and faculty described by speakers and revealed by the worship set on the morning of the visit days I attended. My first visit was the deciding factor. The genuine worship of students and faculty at chapel reminded me of my own church. The first idea tackled when I first met with Coach Mingo about playing football was the objective that the football team was to not just compete, but to win while embodying Biblical principles. I can't wait to start my post-high school experience playing football at Greenville College."
