What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose school? “I selected Lehigh University for its academic and athletic programs and their respective reputations. I visited Lehigh on several occasions as well as participated in its lacrosse camp. I was impressed with the University’s positive atmosphere and the team spirit/dedication shown by the players. The coaching staff was great to me and my family throughout the recruiting process. The coaches embrace the student athlete experience and are building a strong program that I am honored to be a part of in 2016. The campus is beautiful and the student body size is a perfect fit for me. I can’t wait to attend Lehigh!”
Outlook for your High School team? “We graduated some very talented players who were a big part of our success in winning the State Title in 2013 and our run for the title again last year. While it is always hard to replace graduating players, we have a very talented group from our Senior Class down thru the incoming Freshman Class. I feel confident that we will have another strong year with a second State Title in our future.”
Other Comments: “I would like to thank my high school and club coach, George Dick, who has always believed in me and encouraged me to never settle but always strive to improve and grow. I could not ask for a more supportive, knowledgeable, and driven coach. I would also like to thank all of my teammates and friends along with the Quaker City coaching staff, especially Coach Shapiro.
“Lastly, I want to thank my mom and dad for always supporting me on and off the field and helping me through the recruiting process. A special thanks to my big sister, Carlie, and my little brother Brody, who is my biggest fan and has never missed a game.”
