What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose Lafayette? ” Coach (Jim) Rogalski and Coach (Ed) Williams were extremely nice and made everything very easy for my family and I during our visit to Lafayette. I was looking for a smaller campus which I feel I found with Lafayette. Also, it just felt like the best fit for me academically and athletically, which is extremely important. I am really excited about my decision and can’t wait to get there in the fall of 2013.”
Outlook for your HS team next season? “We look good, even though we lost a lot last year graduating our entire starting attack, 2 starting middies, and our starting LSM but we have replacements in line.
“We won the Bucknell Bison Brawl in which we beat some very talented teams so we have the talent. We just need to all get on the same page and we will definitely have a successful season.”
Additional Comments: “I would like to thank my parents for there constant help and guidance throughout my college search. My High School coach, Marc Silbergeld, for all his work he has put into me as a player and a recruit. And, my teammates for helping me get better as a lacrosse player and as a person.”
