What will you major in/study:

Why did you choose school? “It was the best fit for me, academically and athletically. I had a great visit, and having (sophomore middie) Chris LaPierre, who came from my high school, as a host was a plus. Coach (Dom) Starsia’s history and success, along with his coaches, were big factors.”

Outlook for your high school team: “We have a lot of scorers, and hope to build on last years quarterfinal appearance. We believe we can compete for the state title.”

Other comments: “My Bravheart coach, Patrick McDonough, who also coaches at Penn Charter in Philadelphia, has been key in my improvement and letting me showcase my talents. My Shawnee coach, Tim Gushue, has been helping me get better and enjoying my high school years.”
