Are you playing club ball this fall? If so, are you able to compete with any of your Calvert Hall teammates?
JT Bugliosi: I am not playing fall ball with a club team this fall, but I am playing in a tournament with Calvert Hall. This will allow me to play with some teammates and improve our chemistry as a team. With the practices and workouts Calvert Hall does, I will get to be around teammates a lot this fall and hopefully create better bonds with them.
What goals have you set for yourself for next season?
JTB: I've set many goals for myself next season, with the most important being able to bring home an MIAA Championship to Calvert Hall. I want to continue to improve my game in every way, especially my feeding, and keep working to be able to be ready for the transition to the college game next year.
Where does Calvert Hall need to improve as a team to make a run at the MIAA title?
JTB: I think our team is set for a good season and we have a good foundation to make a run at a MIAA championship. We really need to come out every game and play fast and have confidence. With so much talent as a team, working as a unit will be the difference in big games. If we do that consistently, I think we will have a good chance at bringing home a championship.
Why did you pick Ohio State to attend college?
JTB: I decided to pick Ohio State University because, when I went on my visit, it felt like home, and I had a great connection with the coaching staff. Ohio State also is a great university where I can get a good education -- providing me with the major I want to study.
How do you balance your time between the academics at Calvert Hall and playing sports?
JTB: Balancing academics and athletics is very important to learn at Calvert Hall, and I like using my free periods to do homework and study in order to be able to succeed athletically and academically. Also, at home, I try to get ahead on work that I will have later in the week.
