What will you major in/study? Education
Why did you choose Widener? “I chose Widener because of the feeling that I got as soon as I walked on to the campus. I have nothing but praise for the way I was treated from my first visit to my overnight. Coach (Brendan) Dawson is an amazing guy and he is preparing Widener to take the next steps in becoming a top Division III program. He has everyone on the team believing in him and they all are willing to put out 100% effort for him because they know that he does so for them.”
Outlook for your High School team next season? “We are returning a solid core of around 15 guys that should take us to a Mercer County Tournament Championship. We have the talent and the heart to put an amazing team out there on the field we just have to prove ourselves when the season begins.”
Additional Comments: “I would like to thank, first of all, my parents. Times have been rough but they have stuck it out and believed and allowed me to follow my dream of playing college lacrosse. Without them there is no way I would be here today living my dream.”
