What will you major in/study? Economics
Why did you choose Lafayette? “I chose Lafayette because it has a strong academic reputation and I get to compete at the Division 1 level in the Patriot League. Coach (James) Rogalski and his staff were great and I’m impressed how they are transforming the program.”
Outlook for upcoming season? “We lost some talented seniors so this year we will be a young team. There is a bunch of young talent so we don’t expect any setbacks. With that said I expect to make a run in the County playoffs and hope to reach Districts.”
Additional Comments: “I would first like to thank my parents for being there with me through all the tournaments, car rides, and games and for supporting me throughout the whole process.
“Next, I would not have had the top exposure if it weren’t for Ebe Helm and The Duke’s Lacrosse Club. Ebe, Jason Christmas, Mike Mackrides, and Joe Vetrone each guided me and gave me the coaching and opportunity to play at the highest level.
“A big thanks goes to Kacy Small who influenced me early on and to Scott Helm who started lacrosse in my area and first introduced me to the game.
“I attribute a lot of my strength and conditioning to John Schaeffer at Winning Factor and Tom DiSalvo who have been working with me for years and have helped transform me into the athlete I am today.”
