Why did u choose Lehigh? “Lehigh University is the perfect blend of academics and athletics, among the top in both. Along with that, the coaching staff made me feel like part of the Lehigh lacrosse family that will continue the tradition of excellence down the road.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “This year we graduated a lot of players that were keys to our success last season. That being said, we are also returning many valuable players that will help us become the team we think we can be. Coach Urso always fields a successful team and this year will be no different. We are hoping to win a Central League championship, and then achieve our ultimate goal: a State championship.”
Thank You: “First, I would like to thank my Garnet Valley coaches, Coach Urso, Coach Kivlen, Coach Snow Coach Bonaddio and Coach Trowbridge. Thank you for putting me in the position that I am today. Whether it was in season or out of season, you have always dedicated your time to make me and the team better.
“I would also like to thank the Mesa Fresh coaches – Coach Nostrant, Coach Holmes, and Coach Aitken for taking my knowledge of lacrosse to the next level, and pushing me to reach my fullest potential.
“Next a big thanks to the entire Lehigh lacrosse staff for giving me this opportunity.
“Finally, I would like to thank my brother, sisters and parents. Thank you for your support, and spending countless hours driving me to practices, tournaments and games. A special thank you to my dad for helping me since the day I started playing.”
