Coach Wood recruited me to Columbia University when I was in Grade 11, and I joined his program in September of 2000. He was patient with me throughout the process and allowed me and my family to ask questions and make the best long-term decision for me. That is the most important thing to consider when you are weighing your post-secondary options as a Canadian or International student-athlete. I will try to share some my experience as a high school and university student-athlete, as well as my experience as an Assistant Track and Cross Country Coach at both Brown University and Columbia University of the Ivy League.
