What will you major in/study? “Undecided”
Why did you choose Navy? “I have always been interested in pursuing a career in the military. At the Naval Academy I can do that along with getting a great education from one of the top schools in the country and play division 1 lacrosse. I also admire Coach (Rick) Sowell and Coach (Ryan) Wellner and the philosophies they instill in their players. Being right on the water in the town of Annapolis was an added plus.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next season? “We had a young team this past year. We have 19 juniors returning, but we can’t bank on that to get us through next season. The 6 seniors that we lost contributed a lot and they will leave some big holes. We have to work hard and I’m confident we will have a great season.”
Additional Comments: “I would really like to thank Coach Resch, Coach Leahy, Coach Koons, and Coach Harrington from La Salle and the Dukes Coaches Ebe Helm And Jason Christmas as well as the other Dukes Coaches, and my family for all the transportation, time and support throughout the process.”
