Why did you choose St. Joe’s? “I choose St. Joe’s because of the great academics and the location of the the University. One of my goals was to stay close to home.”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “Last season we had an excellent season but we had a really tough loss in the finals of the Inter-ac Invitational. We lost a good amount of our team with most of them being seniors but I think for this upcoming season we will look to have a similar year during the season and stay one of the top teams but I know my teammates and I would really like to get the chance to win that final game this year.”
Additional Comments: “I would like to thank my Mom and Dad for supporting my lacrosse career and always being there for me. I would like to thank my youth coaches from BYC, Frank Urso and Jim Trowbridge for teaching me the basics from a young age. I would like to thank my Malvern coaches John McEvoy, Todd MacFarlane and Matt Mackrides. Also, my Mesa coaches Pat Carney, Pat Campbell, and Peter Scott. And finally my Man Up coach Jim Schorn for not only being a coach but also a good friend.”
