Why did you choose Ridley? “I chose Cabrini because it feels like home to me, and has a lot to offer. I have spent a lot of time on campus the past few years with different lacrosse functions, and my sister and cousin are also students on campus.
“The first time I met Coach (Steve) Colfer he made me feel at ease right away. He is very passionate about his team, and his program, and I am very excited to be a part of such a strong program.
“Coach Hill was my offensive coach at Ridley, and I am happy to continue my college career with him by my side once again. Last, but not least is Coach Taylor, who over the past year has kept in contact with me through text and email, checking in on me, and keeping me updated on the Cabrini Lacrosse Team.”
