As per Sportskeeda, "It is impossible to fully express my gratitude to everyone who has supported me during my time at Iowa – my teammates, who made the last four years the best; my coaches, trainers, and staff, who always let me be me; Hawkeyes fans who filled Carver every night; and everyone who came out to support us across the country, especially the young kids. 

"Most importantly, none of this would have been possible without my family and friends who have been by my side through it all. Because of all of you, my dreams come true."
