Why did you choose the school? “I felt it was a great fit for me; it’s very strong academically and the lacrosse program is really strong. The coaching staff is amazing. I have gone up there many times; it just felt right. I have always wanted to go there; it’s always been my No. 1 choice.”
What is your team’s outlook for next season? “Defensively, we’re very strong. We have five guys that can all fill in spots and make big plays. Offensively, we lost a lot of guys, but we have some young guys that will step up and some new talent that will arrive. Overall, I think we’ll be pretty good.”
Other comments: “First, I want to thank Coach Tom Lemieux for guiding me through this whole process. Thanks to Dukes L.C. coaches, Coach Ebe Helm and Coach Jason Christmas for believing in me and improving my game. Thanks to Coach Brett Manney from NXT for helping me really improve my game and showing me how to play with passion. Thanks to Coach Mark Petrone from Haverford School and Fever and all my youth coaches. And most importantly, thanks to my parents for driving me to many tournaments and being there during the decision process.”
