How did you become involved with SAAC?
I volunteered to help out on the campus level and became very involved. When the conference position on national SAAC opened, I applied and was selected for the position.

What's one cool thing your campus SAAC does that makes you unique?
Our campus SAAC has done a lot of work in the community and it has sparked community service projects within the individual teams, which is great. Also, SAAC gives out student planners and memory sticks every year to our student-athletes to emphasize the student aspect of our collegiate careers.

So far, it has been the in depth discussions we have over various issues and the work we put into each and every proposal.

The competition is, by far, the best aspect of being a D1 athlete. There is nothing more gratifying then beating the big dogs.
