Why did you choose Eastern: “Eastern University seems to be the perfect school for me. The campus has a great vibe to it and the people are very nice. The academics have very high standards and it is a great school for networking. The lacrosse team has very high aspirations for the years I will be attending. Coach (Kevin) Wallace seems like a great coach and I look forward to playing for him.

Outlook for HS Team in 2012: “Being that it is only our second season we still have a lot of work to do. Through a lot of hard work and commitment I think we can surprise some people this year.”

Other Comments: “I would like to thank my parents for helping me and coming to every game since the 4th grade; and my high school and 380 coach Brian Kilpatrick for teaching me most of what I know. I would also like to thank all of my coaches for the Collegeville Cougars and assistant coach Mike Urie.”
