What will you major in/study:

Why did you choose school: I choose the University of Pittsburgh for multiple reasons. First of all, the academics at the university and the availability of internships. Second, the city of Pittsburgh has a lot to offer and I fell in love with it and the campus when I visited. Finally, I knew that even though Pitt’s lacrosse team was club, it is a very competitive team that travels and plays in the MCLA, having qualified for the National Championships last year.

Other school considered:
Boston University, Northeastern University.

Other comments: “I’d like to thank my high school coaches, Randy McNeil and Ryan Greer, and club coaches, Fred Lomady and Bob Ambler; as well as Joe Donnelly, Sr. & Jr at Basic Training Lax. I would also like to thank my parents and sister for their support throughout my lacrosse career.”
