What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose SUNY Cortland? “Academically, I choose Cortland because of they are known for having a very strong Physical Education program, a program that I am interested in. At the same time, Cortland plays a very high level of lacrosse, and I loved the fact that they compete for a National Championship year in and year out. Also, Coach (Steve) Beville made me feel at home on my visit up to campus.”
Outlook for your High School team? “We lost some key seniors but we return a ton of talent on both sides of the ball. With that being said I expect us to have one of our better seasons in years.”
Additional comments: “I would first like to thank Pat Carney for all the help he has been throughout my entire recruiting process and answering any question that I had.
“I also want to thank my Twist coaches Greg Flego, Jack Devlin, and Joe Serio for making this past summer one of my best experiences with lacrosse I ever had, as well as my former coaches Dave Waldman and Mike Miller, and my current coach Jeff Hewlings and his staff, at Strath Haven for everything they have done and are doing for me.
“Lastly, I would like to thank my family and friends for being supportive throughout my lacrosse career so far.”
