What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose Lehigh? “I chose Lehigh because after I visited, I could see myself spending four years of my life in Bethlehem. I wanted a school that would challenge me not only athletically, but academically as well. After meeting the coaches, and attending some classes, I felt Lehigh was the perfect fit. I am excited to further my lacrosse career and work rigorously in my studies and on the lacrosse field.”
Outlook for your High School team? “Last year, we worked well together and as a result, we earned our first Colonial Valley Lacrosse Title for Notre Dame High School. We continued on to play in Group 3 Championship in New Jersey. We hope to be just as competitive this year and our coaches and players will be focused on pushing each other to be the best that we can be to get there. Our motto: “The Strength of the Team is in each individual member…the strength of each member is the Team.” Phil Jackson
Additional Comments: “I would like to thank my parents and family for guiding and supporting me through the recruiting process and being willing to drive me to every tournament and visit several colleges.
“I would also like to thank each and every coach, teacher and teammate I have had the privilege to learn from and who believed in my talents while pushing me to become the student-athlete I am today.”
