What will you major in/study? Business Administration
Why did you choose Wagner? “After meeting with Coaches Matt Poskay and Mark Stapor, and touring the school, I left knowing Wagner is where I want to be. Between the academics, the small class ratio, their location to NYC, and being coached by someone with a resume like Matt Poskay, I’m looking forward to being a part of the future of Wagner men’s lacrosse.”
Outlook for your high school team? “We look to repeat as the PAC-10 Champion and go further in post season than ever before. Our team is young and a lot of the starting players from last year will be back. In addition, we are led again by last season’s Coach of the Year, Kevin Donnelly.”
Additional Comments: “I have been fortunate to have played lacrosse in the highest competitive area with the most opportunities to play and learn, in the country.
“I would like to thank my youth program, the Collegeville Cougars, where I got my start; Director Alan Monzo, and youth Coach John McCormick (Dad). Thanks to the travel teams I’ve played for; Black Bear, 380, PYLA, Penn Premier. And most of all, thanks to HEADstrong LC with Coach and Director Brian Neary, who believed in my abilities; and not to mention the great cause they represent founded by Nick Colleluori.
“Special thanks to Spring-Ford High School lacrosse Head Coach Kevin Donnelly for kicking my tail into shape, teaching me to put the team first and developing me into a versatile player all while molding my character. Thanks goes out to Assistant Coach (Kevin) Czapor for his motivation, leadership, and support, Coaches (Bryan) Capone and (Dan) Monzo for their advice and encouragement. Last but not least, thanks to my parents for all their time and support.”
