Why did you choose Tampa? “I choose University of Tampa due its academics, campus, location and strong lacrosse program. In just a few years, Coach (Rory) Whipple has the Team as one of the top ranked D2 programs in the country. I am excited to play for Coach Whipple who is the winningest coach in D2 history. My HS teammate – Vaughn Butler (Defense) – will also be attending there so look forward to continuing to play with him in college.”
Outlook for this year’s HS Team: “Although we lost a few senior starters from last year’s team which won the Conference and reached the NJ Sectional Championship, we are returning many key players. Seneca HS has 40 wins in past 2 seasons and we hope to continue this winning trend/tradition and compete, again, during playoffs, championship etc.”
Other comments: “I would like to thank Seneca HS Coach Rob Davidson and the Seneca Coaching Staff for helping me get to this point. Also, thanks to Coach Brian Stahre who helped develop and coach me for many years as a Seneca youth player.”
