Why did you choose Penn? “I chose Penn because of its phenomenal academic reputation and the culture that Coach (Mike) Murphy has instilled in the lacrosse program. It seems like a tight-knit group, with everyone committed to hard work and winning.”

HS season outlook for 2012: We return almost everyone on a team that made it to the state championship last year. We have a great goalie, solid defense (including Eric Persky, who is also committed to Penn) and a bunch of offensive players set to play at the next level. If we work hard and buy into what Coach Whitten tells us, we should have a successful season.”

Other comments: “I want to thank my club coach, Ken Miller, who runs a fantastic program and has helped me navigate the college process. I also want to thank Coach Alex Whitten (at New Canaan) and my teammates.”

Note: Ivy League student-athletes must continue through the admissions process
