NEW HAVEN, Conn. (September 26, 2018) -- The Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) is proud to debut its Fall Feature Series for 2018, titled "My Hometown."
Each of the 14-member schools of the CACC will have their own day on the CACC site and social media accounts (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook) from late September through early November. Four student-athletes from each school will be highlighted, as they let fans know what hometown they come from and how that town has helped shape them as the person they are today. University of the Sciences kicks off this fall's series on Wednesday, Sept. 26.
Hometown: Owego, N.Y.
"I think Owego has helped shape me into the person I am today because it's such a small-town community. Everybody knows everybody, and they are willing to lend a helping hand when needed. It's nice to see when everyone is always upbeat with a smile on their face, and I think it's part of the reason I decided to pursue my doctorate of physical therapy because I enjoy helping and interacting with people. Going from a small rural town to a city such as Philadelphia was a hard transition because I had to leave my friends and family three-and-a-half hours away. Although I disagree on sports teams with a lot of people, I have come to enjoy Philadelphia and the people here. That being said, after I graduate I plan to move back and practice physical therapy for the community in the town that raised me."
