What will you major in/study? Communications
Why did you choose Monmouth? “After meeting with Coach (Brian) Fisher and Coach (Andrew) Geison, I was impressed by their vision of success for Monmouth lacrosse and I wanted to be a part of starting a winning program.
“During my visit, I felt comfortable with the size of the University and the layout of the campus. Also, Monmouth has a new communications center and tremendous internship opportunities. Monmouth’s location on the beach definitely was an added plus.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next season? “After winning the Inter-Ac invitational last year with a relatively young team we are looking to build off that momentum. With senior leadership, talented underclassmen, and our superb coaching staff we should be able to continue our success.”
Additional Comments: “First off I would like to thank my family and friends, especially my parents, without their support, love, and sacrifice I would not be here today. I would like to thank the Duke’s organization, Coach (Ebe) Helm, Coach (Jason) Christmas, Coach (Chris) Fallon, Coach (Joe) Vetrone, Coach (Brian) Ikeda for their encouragement and for developing me into a better player. I would especially like to thank Coach (Mike) Mackrides for all his help and guidance in the recruiting process. Also thanks to the Haverford coaching staff, Coach (John) Nostrant, Coach (Travis) Loving and Coach (Mark) Petrone for advancing my level of play and supporting me. Without the help of my youth coaches, Todd MacFarlane with Fever Lacrosse and Matt Morettini with West Chester Youth Lacrosse I would not have the love of the game I have today.”
Other schools considered: Marquette, Robert Morris, Holy Cross, Hartford, Stevenson University, Salisbury
