Why did you choose Hofstra? “I was highly impressed by Coach (Seth) Tierney and the coaching staff at Hofstra. The lacrosse program combined with the academics offers a great opportunity and is a great fit. The emphasis placed on academic achievement and the support system that is in place for a lacrosse player was a key factor in my selection. Also, I was looking for a college that offered the advantages of a city location.”

I would like to thank Matthew Silverman for introducing lacrosse to the Parkland area and throwing with me for the first time. I would also like to especially thank Brett Moyer for his mentoring.
