What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you Saint Leo? “Saint Leo is located in Florida so the weather really drew me down south. I also like the size of the school, it has a nice community feel where everyone knows each other. Also, Coach (Brad) Jorgenson made me feel at home on campus and with the lacrosse team. The lacrosse program is continuing to grow and I love having the opportunity to take part in it.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for the season? “Clearview’s squad will definitely be a more successful team than last year, with many talented younger guys following the lead of the upperclassmen, I believe we will be very competitive.”
Additional comments: “I wouldn’t have the opportunity to play in college if it wasn’t for my parents, Coach (Robert) Rieck and Coach (Mike) Cockrell (Clearview Coaches), Coach Delozier (Youth Coach), and the Shamrocks Lacrosse Program. Thank You.”
