Why did you choose the school? “I chose UC Davis because of its excellent academic reputation, great lacrosse program with an awesome coaching staff and team, and its beautiful campus. From the moment I arrived on the campus, I felt at home, and I knew it was the school for me.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “We lost 12 seniors last year, so there are only a handful of returning players. We are working very hard preparing for the season, and are excited for the challenge to return as PAC-10 Champions.”

I would like to thank my high school coach, Pam Wernersbach, for seeing the potential in me as a varsity lacrosse player and her continuous encouragement and coaching. Lastly, my older brother, Drew, who was the first to teach me anything about lacrosse, and who stayed in the backyard practicing with me for endless hours.”
