What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose the school? “Delaware offers a great combination of strong academics with a competitive lacrosse program. The coaching staff made me feel welcomed and excited to be part of a winning program. I really like the feel of the campus and the size of the school. I was also very impressed with the athletic facilities. I think it is a great all around fit for me.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “I am really excited for the upcoming season because I believe Episcopal can win the Inter-Ac. Last season we were a very young team that lost a lot of close games. This season we bring more experience to the field. We played very well in the Philly Invitational this fall and showed what we are capable of doing in the spring. If we keep practicing hard and carry that same determination to win, we will win the Inter-Ac.”
Other comments: “I want to thank my parents and sisters for all the help and encouragement they gave me throughout the process and for always being by my side. I want to thank my head coach, Andy Hayes, and defensive coach, Will Gibbs, for making me switch positions from midfield to LSM at the beginning of last season; it was not an easy change but with their support, it became a positive step for me. I also want to thank the entire Episcopal lacrosse coaching staff for their help and motivation. Finally I want to thank my NXT coach, Brett Manney, and all the other NXT coaches for their support to help me become a better player.”
