Why did you choose F&M? “F&M is a highly recognized school for its academics and I feel it can ready me for the future. Also I feel I can be a contributing player to the lacrosse program and that it fit perfectly for me as a player. After meeting Coach (Todd) Cavallaro I felt I could reach my potential as a lacrosse player under him and his coaching staff.”
Outlook for HS team next season? “This year we have a big senior class so we look to be contenders in the Catholic League. We have a very competitive out of league schedule with plenty of tests that will show how strong of a team we really are. Overall, I see this year as being a successful year for Wood lacrosse.”
Additional Comments: “First off I want to thank my Mom and Dad, without them I would have never been able to get so involved in lacrosse.
“Next I’d like to thank my Wood coach Jim Beury for all he’s done during my recruiting process along with Coach Kevin Banks. I also would like to thank my twist coaches Coach Jack Devlin, Coach Greg Flego, and Coach Joe Serio for their years of help.
“Lastly I’d like to thank my youth coaches Steve Johnston, Frank Johnston, and Kevin Gearhart without them I would have never fallen in love with lacrosse.”
