Quick Q+A with Pieper
“I signed with Reading because they consistently have a great team, excellent fan base and are known for developing players. I got a good feeling from the organization and it felt like the right place for me.”
“At Quinnipiac, I played for the National Championship, in a couple of NCAA tournaments and had a lot of winning seasons. Being one of the go-to guys there put a lot of pressure on me to uphold that reputation and I will rely on those experiences as I transition into the pros.”
