What will you major in/study? History/education
Why did you choose school? “I chose Marist for many different reasons. Academically, it was perfect for me. They have excellent history programs and education programs, for I want to be a teacher when I grow older and knowing that made my decision a lot easier. Coach (Keegan) Wilkinson and Coach (Mike) Gongas made me feel very comfortable on my visit and showed that they’re a top lacrosse program getting better and better each year!”
Outlook for your High School team? “We return 80% of our players this year. if we work hard day in and day out we will be a force in the Central League.”
Other comments: “I would like to thank my parents for spending their time/money watching me play lacrosse and always supporting me with my choices. I would like to thank my coaches, Coach Miller and Coach Neary for helping me through the recruiting process. And a very special shoutout to my older brother, Greg, who helps me out with everything I need with this sport. He is my role model and I am very grateful to have an awesome brother like you.”
