Racket or hammer, student-athlete takes a hands-on grip

Meet Tucker D. Phillippe-Johansson, a member of the men’s tennis team who recently graduated with a bachelor’s in residential construction technology & management and an associate degree in building construction technology. “When I’m serving, usually I think about where I want to hit the ball before I do it,” the Mattituck, New York, resident says in a new Wildcat Spotlight video. “I kind of clear my mind so I don’t really think about anything else but the shot that I’m hitting.” It’s that singular focus that brought him success on and off the court, allowing him to compete collegiately and guaranteeing an immersive learning experience.
