What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose school? “I chose Amherst College because of its reputation for academic excellence and its small town New England college feel. The campus and athletic facilities are just beautiful. The NESCAC conference is incredibly competitive and the Amherst lacrosse program is one of the best in the conference. I was very excited by Coach Jon Thompson’s enthusiastic coaching style and plans for the program.”
Outlook for your High School team? “Lower Merion has a very bright outlook for next season. Although we lost a few key seniors, we have a great core group of players returning. We all have been working very hard this offseason to prepare for next year. Our coaching staff is extremely committed to improving our team, and with hard work and strong leadership, we will have the opportunity to compete for a league title.”
Other comments: “I would like to thank my high school coaches Ernie Shapiro, J.B. Bowie, Chet Laubach, George Chu, and Mike Borsch. I would also like to thank Ebe Helm, Jason Christmas, Mike Mackrides, Eric Gregg, Billy Mckinney, Joe Vetrone, Chris Fallon and the rest of the Duke’s LC coaching staff. Lastly, I would like to thank my parents and my two brothers, William and Jordan, for all of their time and support.”
