Why did you choose PSU-Abington? “During the visit with Coach (Keith) Brandon I was given a phenomenal incite to everything I needed to know about Penn State Abington, including the different academic programs, student/athlete life outside of school, and the benefits that Coach Brandon’s lacrosse program offers. I knew committing to Penn State Abington would involve dedication, hard-work, and the love for game of lacrosse, all of which I am excited to begin.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for the season? “The 2013 season will be a rough fight to the playoffs. I know that we can make it with the extra hard-work and diligence that the Archbishop Ryan lacrosse team brings to the table. I know the team that we have this year is widely different than last year’s, but the potential that I see from the underclassmen will help us to achieve our goals.”
Additional Comments: “I would Like to thank Coach Brandon for taking the time out of his day to keep me up to date with his program and his genuine interest in me playing on his team. Additionally, I would like to thank the Archbishop Ryan Lacrosse Organization, Coach (Steve) Pape, Coach (Fred) Bottone, and Coach (Anthony) Covello, for their help in coaching me and making me persevere not only as an athlete but as person.”
