Why did you choose Lehigh? “I knew Lehigh was the place for me as soon as I got on campus. The school was amazing and I really liked coach (Kevin) Cassese and (Errol) Wilson’s attitude about building a program that is able to compete year in and year out. That really stuck with me. Also, Lehigh is a fantastic school and Coach Cassese has set up a great networking program for his players in the juniors and senior year.”
Outlook for 2015: “Our team for next year looks extremely promising. We have a lot of juniors and sophomores this year who can all make an impact on the field. We are looking to do better than last year when we made it to the Massachusetts North semifinal.”
