Why did you choose the school? “I chose Michigan University to receive a good mix of high end academics and athletics. Michigan had both, and with the incredible campus and coaching staff, it made my decision pretty easy.”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “While in the past our team has had a mix of incredibly talented upperclassmen and young starters, I believe that this year we will finally bring the experience needed to achieve our ultimate goal: the program’s first state championship.”
Other comments: “I would like to thank my high school/club lacrosse coaches, JC Valore and Chad Flexon. They always put their players first and without them I would be nowhere near the player I am today. I would also like to thank my family for their unconditional support and encouragement.”
