Why did you choose school? “I visited several schools, but when I visited Drexel it just felt right for me. I enjoyed the coaching staff and got along well with the current players. I made a decision that I wanted to stay close to home and get a good education and Drexel presented that opportunity. I believe that they have a great program.”
Outlook for your high school team: “We return all but three starters from a 10-1 Central League team and we would love to be in a position to again fight for the Central League Championship.”
Other comments: “I would like to thank my parents for their support and my father (head Garnet Valley coach Frank Urso and former Maryland great and two-time national champion) more importantly for the help and instruction he has given to make me a better player. I would like to thank my teammates for everything on and off the field. Most important I would like to thank God for the opportunity to play lacrosse.”
