Why did you choose JMU?
The culture at JMU is awesome.  Everyone here is really friendly and loves to have a good time.

What is your major, and why did you choose it?
I'm a kinesiology/sport management major and I'm also pre-law.  I'd like to go to law school and work in professional sports.

What are your hobbies outside of baseball?
I'm really into playing guitar, golf, and the occasional Xbox session.  I'm also a brother of Sigma Phi Epsilon.

Do you have a nickname on the team? How did it come about?
Some guys call me John Mayer, even though I'm better at guitar than he is... not to mention better looking.

I want to see us win the CAA championship and play in an NCAA regional.

Do you have any unique talents or skills?
I can throw a pretty nasty 96 mph fastball when no one's watching.

If you could hang out with one MLB player for a day who would it be and why?
Kevin Youkilis because he's got the best beard in baseball.

If you could be on one reality or game show what would it be?
Just don't put me on The Jersey Shore.

Packing Eagle Field beyond capacity against UVA.  The support was awesome.

Virginia Tech.  Can't let JMU football take all the glory.

Where is your favorite place to play other then at JMU?
Wherever it's warmest.

What is your favorite memory at JMU outside of baseball?
Too many to mention... being a Frog was a blast though.
