What will you major in/study? Undecided

Why did you choose Michigan? “I chose Michigan because not only does it fulfill every aspect of a college experience that I am looking for, but it takes it to the next level.

“Michigan is known for its academic excellence and athletic success. It has the “wow factor” that is when you step on campus, tour the facilities, and just look around, you say “wow”. The school as a whole has a sense of pride that can’t be matched by any other. Although, I didn’t only choose the school for the school, but also chose it because of the lacrosse program.

“I love the coaching staff and every person that is involved with the program (academic support, assistants, etc) and the team in general. I feel that Michigan is not only a good fit for me, but that I am a good fit for Michigan.”

What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “Last season we finished as #1 in the State and #2 in the Nation with a record of 51-0 for the past two seasons. We will miss a number of seniors from 2013, but have so much depth in our program that those returning, and those joining, will definitely help us make another run at the State Championship title this year.”

Additional Comments:” I would like to thank my parents and two older brothers for supporting me through this process, as well as my coaches, Mr. And Mrs. Knobloch for allowing me the opportunity and privilege to represent such a great program as I advance my play to get to that next level. However, without my teammates at Moorestown and their dedication to achieve an endless pursuit of perfection, pushing me everyday and making me better, I would not be the player I am today. Thank you!
