PBR: What other schools were you considering?

Goonan: Some other schools that I considered were Mount Vernon Nazarene and Adrian.

PBR: Sinclair is known for sending many of their players to 4 year colleges.  How much of a role did that play in your decision to go to Sinclair?

Goonan: They first saw me play at Top Prospect Games last summer.

PBR:  How much of a role did distance play in your decision?

Goonan: Distance didn't play a huge role in my decision; however, it is only about 2.5 hours away from home so my family could come watch games and visit without having to plan a huge trip.

Goonan: 402 avg, 29 RBI's, 4 HR, 8 2B, 

PBR: Who is the toughest hitter that you have faced in Ohio?
