What will you major in/study? Political Science/History
Why did you choose Ferrum? “I chose Ferrum for a few reasons. One reason was their outstanding athletic facilities that they offer for the lacrosse players. Secondly, upon visiting, all of the coaches and players made me feel at home,and I made a true connection with them. Lastly Ferrum has top notch academics which will help me succeed in becoming a Lawyer someday.”
Outlook for your High School team? “We are returning all of our close defenders and most of our middies. This year we are looking to rebound from a tough last two years, and hopefully receive a bid into the Final Four’s and possibly seek our first ever District 1 bid this spring.”
Additional Comments: “First I would like to thank my Mom and Dad for supporting me 100% of the time, and for taking me to all of the practices and tournaments over the last two years.
“I would also, like to thank all of my High School coaches; my Freshman coach Joe Youngblood. My Sophomore year to Senior year coaches Grady Wise, Sean Weston ,Matt Campbell, Jim O’Brien, and most importantly my goalie coach Ed Sewell.
“Lastly all of my club coaches Kevin Donnelly, John Hoffman,and Bob Alvord.”
