Why did you choose school? “I chose Lafayette for its strong academics and great lacrosse program. I also really liked Coach Mangan. He is a really nice, down-to-earth guy who has the program heading in the right direction. The campus was also really nice and I liked the vibe I felt when I visited.
“Playing in the Patriot League was also something that really appealed to me. With teams like Army, Navy, and Bucknell on the schedule, Lafayette has the chance to play against some of the best college lacrosse teams in the country. I am also very excited to play with my good friend and teammate, Jon Garino, as well as an old Ashbee Lacrosse teammate Corey Scheuerle (St. Joseph’s Prep).”
