Why did you choose Lehigh? “I chose Lehigh University because of its reputation for excellence in the classroom and rising powerhouse on the field. Another reason I chose Lehigh was the coaching. I’ve known Coach (Kevin) Cassese and Coach (Brendan) Callahan since I started playing in 7th grade, and attended all of their developmental camps over the years. They have helped shape me into the player that I am today. The deciding factor was having a strong Coach to Player Connection.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next season? “We are a fairly young team and are dealing with a few unexpected obstacles. We graduated some key players from last years team so we will need some of our underclassmen to step up and take some of the pressure off our older players.”
Additional Comments: “I would like to thank my parents and friends for supporting me throughout the process. I would also like to thank Coaches (Todd) MacFarlane, (David) Metzbower, and (John) Nostrant (Old School) as well as Coaches Jason Christmas and Ebe Helm (Dukes) for guiding me in the right direction.”
Other schools considered: Loyola, Villanova, Bryant, St. Johns, Fairfield
