What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose Georgetown? “I chose Georgetown for many reasons. Georgetown is such a great academic school with high standards. I wanted to be a part of this environment not only because of the challenge, but also to learn skills that will prepare me for later in life. It was a huge bonus that the campus and surrounding area was beautiful when I went on my visit. Another reason I went with Georgetown is that it is not too far from home, so my family will be able to attend my games. Lastly, the coaches at Georgetown ultimately won me over. I really enjoyed meeting Coach (Kevin) Warne and his staff, and I think that they have what it takes to return Georgetown back into one of the top lacrosse programs in the country and I’m excited to one day be a part of that.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next season? “Penn Charter will be competitive as usual. We lost a lot of good players, but we have a strong group of upperclassmen that are going to lead us on the field. Coach (Pat) McDonough always schedules games against some of the top teams in the country, so we will be challenged every game.
Other comments: “There are plenty of people that I would like to thank. I would like to thank my Abington coaches, Coach Rich Rambo, Coach Chip Jones, and Coach Kevin Leech, for helping me become the player I am today. They taught me from a very young age the game of lacrosse. I would also like to thank my Penn Charter coaches, Coach Patrick McDonough and Coach Billy McKinney. They elevated my game by teaching me everything I need to know to be successful. Also, I would like to thank my Duke’s coaches, Coach Ebe Helm and Coach Jason Christmas for helping me get the exposure I needed to get recruited by college coaches. Without all my coaches, I would not have had this great opportunity. Last but not least, I would like to thank my family. My mom and dad for their constant support. My sisters Jordan and Lindsay for taking the time to come to my games. And lastly my brother Brian who has shown me what it takes to be a Division I lacrosse player.”
