What will you major in/study: undecided
Why did you choose school: “I was immediately impressed with the school and coaches: Coach (Nick) Myers, Coaches (Brad) Ross and (Jamison) Koesterer on my visits to the campus. There was such a feeling of school pride in and around the campus, that you just wanted to be a part of. The academics, campus, facilities are unbelievable, the school is really amazing.”
Outlook for your high school team: “I would like to thank Malvern Prep for the opportunity to be part of the 2018 Freshman class, I look forward t spending the next 4 years with my classmates and enjoying the Malvern tradition together. Also, I am looking forward with the underclassman of Malvern to keep the tradition of strong work ethic and dedication and in order to maintain a successful tradition of lacrosse established by the past Malvern players and upperclassman under the leadership of Head Coach John McEvoy, and Assistant Coaches Todd MacFarlane, Matt Mackrides, Steve Holmes and Matt McCormick.”
Other comments: “First, I would like to thank coach McKinney and coach Gregg, two terrific coaches and individuals and my biggest supporters. They helped our team become better lacrosse players, and young men on and off the field. They also helped our team receive a lot of exposure this past summer by putting our Triple H team in some of the greatest tournaments in the country.
“Next, I would like to thank West Chester Lacrosse Association where I started playing lacrosse in Kindergarten, 9 years ago. At West Chester Lacrosse, my coaches helped mold me into a better lacrosse player. Coach Mike McGuane (2 years), Coach Scott Gabrielson (6 years) and Coach Sean Earley (3 years) helped coach our West Chester teams and helped to teach the fundamentals that allow our players and teams to be so successful. At WC Lacrosse we had some awesome teams, with terrific talent, and most important great teammates and friendships formed as a result. I will always be proud of our accomplishments at WCLA (DUBC).
“I would especially like to thank my summer Freedom Lacrosse club and Chester County All-Star Coach, coach, Bob Miller, (Lionville youth lacrosse director). He was one of my favorite coaches, whether our teams were competing against each other in youth lacrosse or on the same team. He really helped me through the entire recruiting process and I couldn’t thank him enough for what he has done for me.
“Also, I would like to thank Coach Jim Schorn, Head Lacrosse Coach at West Chester East High School and Man-up Lacrosse, for helping to guide me through the recruiting process and supporting me along the way in many difficult decisions.
“Lastly, I would like to thank my Mom, Dad, brother, Zach and sister, Marissa for all of their support.
