Why did you choose school: “I always wanted to be able to play lacrosse at the highest level I could while attending a strong academic school at the same time. For me, Princeton is that school because every year they are very competitive and have the potential to do big things, and I will get a great education. In addition, I love the town and campus, and the coaches and players are fantastic. It was immediately evident to me that there is a special camaraderie in the lacrosse program.”
Outlook for your high school team in 2014: “I am very excited for this year because we will have all worked very hard during the off-season, and with the blend of great players and coaches, I think we will be highly competitive.”
Other comments: “I would love to thank Coach Stanley and the rest of the Collegiate coaches for all they have done for me as well as Coach Rusbuldt and Leahy of Amped Lacrosse who have helped me improve every summer.”
