What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose the school? “As soon as I stepped onto Cincinnati’s campus I knew it was the school for me. I love how it’s in the city, but when your on campus you can barely tell. The coaching staff is incredible, and their coaching philosophy played a major part in my decision. I love how on campus you can feel the energy in the air and can really tell the student’s really take pride in Cincinnati. The team is a family and I can’t wait to start my college career as a Bearcat!”
What is your HS team’s outlook for 2013: “This season is looking very good for us! We have a lot of talented players and a lot of potential. As long as we stay focused and take it a game at a time we should have a very successful season. I’m very excited for the season to start!”
Other comments: “I would really like to thank my family first for all the support and time they have put into my lacrosse career so far. I would have never become the player or person I am without your love and encouragement. A big thanks to all my teammates for all the memories made along the way, and also for making me a better player. I’d like to sincerely thank my PA Express coaches, Coach Ryan, Coach Parsons, Coach O’Donnell, and my Spring-Ford coach, Amy Short, for everything you do for me!”
