College Choice: Fairfield University
Club Affiliations: Duke’s LC, Mesa Fresh 2014
Major lacrosse honors: All Inter-Ac; Nike Blue Chip; All-Star Baltimore Summer Kickoff
What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose Fairfield? “A key factor when deciding Fairfield was their prestigious academic standards and great Business program. I was also impressed with the coaching staff’s ambition to win. I firmly believe that the Fairfield Lacrosse program will continue to be one of the most competitive programs in the nation.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next season? “Although we lost some key players to graduation, I believe we have a lot of talented returning guys with a lot of experience who can play just as well. We also have a great coaching staff to support us. The Inter-Ac should be as competitive as ever this season.”
Additional Comments: “First I would like to thank my mother and father along with my two sisters and two brothers for all the love and support. I would like to thank my high school coaches Pat McDonough and Billy McKinney for developing me into the player I am today. Also special thanks to my Duke’s coaches Ebe Helm, Jason Christmas, Mike Mackrides, and Chris Fallon along with my Mesa Fresh coaches Peter Scott and Pat Carney; all of your help was greatly appreciated.”
