Other comments: “A big thank you to Coach Ebe Helm and all of the other coaches at Duke’s that put me on the map and opened so many doors for me; My high school coaches, Eric Jackson and Brian Wallace, for helping and connecting me with a lot of good people; and Avon Grove Wildcats Lacrosse, all of my youth coaches that taught me the fundamentals (Bill Cook, Matt Shreiner, John Shaw).

“Also, I would like to thank my parents, Frank and Sharon, my sister Gracie, and all of my friends for their love and support throughout the whole process. Finally and especially my dog Lil, who has been chasing every ball that I have missed since Day 1.
