What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose High Point? “When I first saw the campus, I fell in love. Everything about it is beautiful and brand new. Also, the coaching staff really focuses on the lives of student athletes, to make sure they’re successful on the field and in the classroom.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “I believe we will surprise people this year. In the years past, the program has struggled. Cherry Hill East isn’t a team that should be slept on this year. I believe we will win our first playoff game ever and maybe even more than that.”
Thank You: “I would first like to thank my mom, dad, and brother. They are always there for me and have helped me the most throughout all of my lacrosse career.
“In addition, I would like to thank my coaches, Bill Keane, Mike Yarusso, Steve Picot, John Cipriani, Dave Gaylord, Ted Spencer, Jon Mouradian and Erick Wood for making me the best lacrosse player I could be as well as helping me throughout the recruiting process
“Finally I would like to give a special thanks to my friends and teammates. I would like to give a special thanks to Chris Anderson my youth coach, the Simmons family for introducing the sport to me, and Damon Legato for teaching me high level lacrosse at a young age.”
Other schools considered: St. Joe’s, Franklin and Marshall
