Why did you choose Arcadia?
“I was looking at a couple lower D1 schools and upper tier D3 schools and I got an e-mail at end of the summer from the Arcadia coach (Delaney). We looked into it; we took a visit and I felt like the coach is super-organized and knows what he’s talking about. Everything kind of clicked. I was in physical therapy at the time and I thought it was a cool program; I get to chase my academic dream and help build a program at Arcadia.”

What is your HS team’s outlook for the season?
“Since my freshman year, every season we’ve gotten better and I am hoping to keep that rolling with the team. We have a pretty talented team with a lot of kids that have been on varsity a few years; hopefully we’ll make an impact in the conference and with our record overall.”

Other comments: “I want to thank my parents, my dad Chuck and mom, Amy; I also ant to thank my coaches, in high school and club lacrosse. And also I thank my girlfriend and all my friends and family for supporting me through the whole process of recruiting and training.”
