Scholarships/recognitions/awards for college or while in college: Football TASO scholarship, Baseball TASO Scholarship, Jane Holcomb “Isaiah” Award, TLU Academic Scholar Award

Extra-curricular activities/organizations while in college: I am on the football team at TLU.

What are you enjoying about your college experience?
I have enjoyed meeting new friends from all over the country and I have really enjoyed being on a college campus.

How do you feel your time at Legacy helped prepare you for college?
The college schedule is almost identical to Legacy’s. Just that fact alone has been so helpful at school. I’ve watched my friends struggle and try to adjust, but for me, it was no problem! I also think the fact that I have been in a Christian environment has helped prepare me to defend my faith.

How was your adjustment to the college schedule based on coming from a university-model school?
There was barely a transition at all.

What are some of your fond memories/favorite experiences while at Legacy?
My best memories are the times I spent on the field with my two younger brothers. This is something that is very rare and I’m glad we all understood how special it was. Nothing could ever compare to our time there or the memories I shared with Ryan and Jared.

If you had to describe Legacy in one or two sentences to somebody, what would you say?
It is a Christian school with a schedule like a college. The education is tough, but it definitely prepared me for what I experienced here at TLU.

How does your spiritual life play a role in your college experience?
Even at a Christian college I have needed my faith to ground me and remind me what was right. I have also needed it to defend what I believe, because even at my school, the teachers have secular viewpoints and opinions. It helps me to also stick to my guns and say no to the “crowd.”

Do you feel Legacy helped to grow you spiritually and for doing God’s work?
Yes. My nickname at school is the “counselor” for a reason! The guys talk to me about things and I try to give them good, godly counsel.

Is there anything else you would like to share with Legacy families or those interested in Legacy?
Legacy may not have all the bells and whistles of some of the larger private schools, but you can build deep relationships with others, the teachers really care about you, and you can build a Legacy for those that come behind. Everything at Legacy has meaning!
