Why did He Choose Greenville: “ I chose Greenville because of the small atmosphere just like my high school.  I really liked how the program has chapel and worship before games.  I also liked the fact that the class sizes are very small.  I felt Greenville was the best atmosphere for me to excel academically and athletically.”
