What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose Loyola? “Loyola has always been a favorite school of mine and is the perfect size for me. I love the school and what it has to offer academically and athletically. I have great respect for the entire coaching staff. Coach (Charley) Toomey, (Dave) Metzbower, and (Matt) Dwan have a great track record and I cant wait to be a part of their future!”
Outlook for your High School team in 2015? “We lost eight great seniors who lead us through an amazing undefeated season this year, but still have a lot of young talent returning. Our goal every year is to compete and win the Inter-Ac.”
Other comments: “I want to first thank my mom and dad for supporting me through my lacrosse career and the recruiting process. I want to thank my high school coaches, Coach McEvoy, Coach McFarland, and Coach Mackrides. I would also like to thank Coach Mueller for his support with Mesa, as well as Coach (Bob) Miller for helping me develop as a player throughout my youth lacrosse years and teaching me respect for the game.”
Other schools considered: Penn, Villanova, Boston U, Fairfield
