TO THE EDITOR:
If you would have told me at the beginning of my college career that I would be finishing it at the University of North Carolina, I definitely wouldn’t have believed you.
Thankfully, the Lord's plans were greater than my own.
I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to experience Chapel Hill, even if it was only for a year.
To the coaches: thank you for trusting me to come in and be a part of this team. Coach Fedora and Coach Kap, I hope I exceeded your expectations and made you proud. I truly value all the skills and knowledge I have gained here.
To my teammates: thank you for welcoming me with opening arms. We clicked from the beginning and I am so grateful I got the chance to know yall. You each have helped me become a better athlete and I know we will be lifetime friends.
And lastly to the fans: thank you for giving me the opportunity to be a Tar Heel. Thank you for coming to Kenan every Saturday to support this team and I.
It has been such a privilege to get to meet so many of you. I may not have been a Tar Heel born or a Tar Heel Bred, but when I die I am definitely a Tar Heel dead.
Go Heels forever.
