What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose Yale? “It is a very competitive academic environment in which I believe I will thrive. I also visited the campus this fall and I think the campus is second to none. The guys on the team currently, seemed like a great group and I liked the kids in my recruiting class. Coach (Andy) Shay also told me that they were trying to go for a really tough, hard-sliding strategy on D and I think I could be very successful in that kind of set up.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next season? “We are ranked number 7 in the Nation preseason and we have 16 Division One commits so we are hoping to have a great season and accomplish our long term team goals.”
Additional Comments: “I want to thank my Dad/Coach Tony Resch. He has obviously been with me through my growing into a lacrosse player. He is one of the greatest coaches ever and I had the privilege to learn from him. Also my brother Patrick for blazing a trail for me at my high school and now in college. He is a junior at Dartmouth so I will get a year to compete with him which will be awesome. Thanks to my mom for always supporting me and to my head coach Bill Leahy and of course to my team who I would be nothing without.”
Other schools considered: Boston University, Saint Joseph’s University
