What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose school? “When I arrived at the campus, I immediately fell in love with the atmosphere and the life on and off campus. After learning about the school’s academic programs, it seemed to be a perfect fit for me. The lacrosse coaches made me feel very comfortable, as well as the players. I believe Quinnipiac’s lacrosse program has a bright future.”
Outlook for your High School team? “We are gunning for a three-peat of our conference and becoming district champions after being upset to our rivals. After winning districts, we hope to become state contenders and get on the map as a hotbed for lacrosse.”
Other Comments: “I would like to first thank all of my coaches from SPA Youth Lacrosse for introducing me to the game and for feeding my passion for the sport. I would also like to thank my high school coaches for taking me to the next level and teaching me what is expected of a high school lacrosse player. I would really like to express my gratitude toward my Fusion Elite coaches. I credit much of my success in being recruited to them and their belief in me. Whether it was help on or off the field, they were always there to support and guide me.
“Finally, I would like to thank my family most of all. I don’t know where I would be without their support. Driving me to practices, conditioning, tournaments, camps; not letting me give up when I was tired, motivating me to continue to work hard and reminding me that it will all pay off. I appreciate everything they’ve done for me more than they know.”
