When asked what directed him to Stonehill, Tommy responded “I really liked the campus and as soon as I heard about the academic reputation I was instantly hooked. Since I was little I’ve had the passion to peruse my football career, and at Stone Hill the football program reminds me of a family. And that’s very important to me. Coach Talley really cares for his players. Also I really enjoy the Boston area campus, there’s plenty to do and it’s a very loving and friendly environment.”
