What will you major in/study? Business

Why did you choose Lehigh? “I chose Lehigh because it is a great fit for me. It’s a smaller school with a big reputation academically and athletically.

“I think Lehigh offers the best of both worlds – the personal connections of a small school with amazing facilities, faculty, and programs. Also, I’m really excited about the lacrosse program; I consider myself very fortunate to be able to learn from Coach (Kevin) Cassese and the rest of the staff.”

Outlook for 2013 HS season? “My hope for the 2013 high school season is to go undefeated in our very tough spring break schedule and to win the North American Lacrosse Invitational.”

Other schools considered: Rutgers, Hartford, St.Johns, Providence

Additional Comments: “I would like to thank all my coaches, previous and present, The Hill Academy, Edge Lacrosse, and Oakville Hawks Minor Lacrosse for everything they’ve done on my journey. Also a special thanks to my family for their encouragement and support, and for all the time spent at various fields and arenas throughout the years.”
