I am very grateful for all that they have done.
“Next I’d like to thank JC Valore and the entire Southshore staff, for allowing me to be a part of such a great program and helping guide me throughout this recruiting process.
“In addition, I would like to thank my Haddonfield Memorial coaches: Damon Legato, Justin Hawkins, and Matthew Balkonis for pushing me in practice everyday.
“Also a special thanks to Ted Spencer, Charles Simmons, Chris Anderson, and Brian Wolfeld for helping me become a better lacrosse player and person.”
