What will you major in/study? Education Or Business
Why did you choose Marquette? “The education at Marquette fit what I was looking for and the coaches were fun and reminded me of my Penncrest coaches who I love playing for.”
Thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/outlook for next season? “We won the State Championship, there isn’t much more to say! We had a crazy year which was capped off with this great opportunity. Next year is going to be harder with everyone gunning for us, but that is the best part! Hopefully we will rise to the challenge!”
Thank You: “I would like to thank all the people that helped me throughout my lacrosse career. Starting with my Rose Tree Optimist coaches, Chris Bonnett, Brian Morris, and John Groses. I would also like to thank the Penncrest coaching staff of Wayne Matsinger, Eric Pool, Scott Rumford, Chris Derrick, and Evan Petti.
“Thanks go out to my club teams, HEADstrong coached Brian Neary, Casey and Andrew Eidenshink and The Dukes coached by Ebe Helm, Jason Chrismas, and Mike Mackrides.
“Lastly and most importantly, my parents and my younger brother, Zach for all the support throughout the years.”
Other schools considered: UMass, University of Hartford, High Point University
