COLLEGE LEADER
He captained the Ohio State University fencing team for three of the four years that he was eligible to compete for the college in NCAA competition. He finished runner-up in epee in the 2016 NCAA Championships final, before winning the title in his senior and final year in 2018. He believes his experience in NCAA competition has helped prepare him for the Olympic Games. "There's so much pressure [in NCAA competition] because everyone's [trying to] go out and be the best for their school. There's always so much intensity in every tournament. I think that's going to help me a lot to handle pressure." (ohiostatebuckeyes.com, 24 Jul 2018; ohiostatebuckeyes.com, 19 Apr 2019; thelantern.com, 09 Apr 2018)
