What will you major in/study? Business or Engineering
Why did you choose Mercer? “I chose Mercer because it offered everything I was looking for in my college experience. Academically, Mercer has nationally recognized Business and Engineering programs with a beautiful campus in Macon, Georgia. Athletically, the commitment the University is making to the lacrosse program is incredible and I know Coach (Kyle) Hannan is the perfect person to bring this program into the national spotlight.”
Outlook for your High School team? “Our team has the opportunity to really turn some heads and make a name for ourselves. We lost only a couple impact players from last year’s team and we know that this is the year we can really turn the corner as a program.”
Additional Comments: “I would like to thank Jack Devlin, Joe Serio and Greg Flego (Twist Lacrosse) for their help through the recruiting process and for making summer ball really enjoyable.
“I would also like to thank Mike Delgrande (SCH) for seeing my potential and pushing me to become a Division 1 caliber player. Coach Delgrande was instrumental in my recruitment and I cannot thank him enough.
I would also like to thank my family for the time they sacrificed over the years to allow me to play.
“Finally, I would like to thank my Dad, Harry, for coaching me over the past 9 years and for really allowing me to grow as a player. The time he committed to me is immeasurable and I know it means a lot to him to see me reach this point.”
