In my freshmen year I threw the discus 99′ and the shot 38′ which was not good in my eyes so I quit the team only to have coach Mirabelli encouraged me to stay on the team. Thank God I did! Coach Mirabelli gave me the confidence with informative progressive drills that enhanced my technique tremendously! I became a 3-time Meet of Champion, and won the National HS Title in the USA in the discus 196’7″ and placed 3rd in the Shot with a 61’5″ toss in 1998 and 1999! I got a full scholarship to Penn State. Thanks Coach for all your help!
