Monmouth College & You
I was fortunate to play basketball and baseball at Monmouth. My time as a Fighting Scot was made truly special by several major events, including: winning the Midwest Conference baseball championship as a freshman, being part of basketball’s 1,000th program win, playing with multiple Hall of Fame players, and witnessing numerous hitting and scoring records set.
As a proud graduate and employee, I visit with other alumni, friends and fans of the Fighting Scots to help support our student-athletes’ experiences. I also have the pleasure to work with a group of dedicated coaches who are honored to train, coach, teach and mentor our student-athletes.
