Why did you choose the school? “I chose Dickinson because of the perfect balance of great academics and a great lacrosse program. I felt comfortable with the culture of the team and how the team is a close-nit group of guys. Also, I appreciated the way Coach Webster, Coach Marshall and the rest of the staff handled the process. Coach Webster’s a great coach and a great guy and I’m excited to play for him in the future.”
Outlook for 2013 HS season: “We are returning a ton of seniors this year and I think if we put our minds to it and work hard throughout this year and into our season, we can make a run for the state championship. We have talent, we just have to put it together and never let up.”
Other comments: “I’d like to thank my Radnor coaches, including Coach (John) Begier, who is the man and was always helping out with everything throughout the process. I’d also like to thank my other Radnor coaches including Coach (John) Sims, my Mesa Fresh coach, and Coach (Larry) Disipio and of course my parents and family.”
