Academic Honors: Honor Roll
What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose Lehigh? “For me it was the perfect combination of academics and its top rated Business School along with a first class winning lacrosse program. When I went to campus I immediately felt comfortable with Coach (Kevin) Cassese and his staff and I would like to thank him for this opportunity.”
What is your outlook for 2013 HS season? “We’re going to be a young team but that’s not going to stop us from competing each and every day. We have a great group of kids and I’m really looking forward to making a run in the always tough ChesMont League.”

Additional Comments: “I want to thank my parents for always supporting me and being by my side. My ManUp coaches Jim Schorn and Paul Meyers for all of their support and guidance over the past several years and Coach Metzbower for all his help this summer.
“I also want to thank my high school coaches: Jon Heisman, Eric Carruthers, and Brian Cash for all believing in me and pushing me to always get better.
“And lastly, my family and friends for always coming to my games and supporting me everyday.”
