Why did you choose the school? “When I went on my visit to Penn State, I knew it was the right fit. It provides the perfect balance of academics and athletics. The academic side offers a lot of majors and opportunity, which was important to me. I love the Penn State campus and the big school atmosphere. For the lacrosse aspect, the combination of the coaching staff and competitive program only made my decision easier.”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season?
“This past year, Spalding had one of it’s best seasons in school history. Looking to this year, we are losing some impact players but with the young talent returning from last year, we expect to continue to improve and make it even further into playoffs.”
