What will you major in/study? Business

Why did you choose the school? “I immediately fell in love with the school as soon as I stepped on campus. It was a very welcoming environment; I felt like I was at home. Also, Coach Boward and Coach Thompson were very kind and a pleasure to talk to. I also wanted to choose a school that would not only make me a successful lacrosse player but also set me up with a great education.”

Team’s outlook for 2016 HS season: “We lost a lot of talented seniors last year, but that is nothing new for us. The past two classes in front of mine have brought a lot of talent. It just gives more opportunities for people to step up. I think we will have a strong season. I couldn’t be more excited for my senior season.”

Thank You: “I would first like to thank all of my family especially my Mom and Dad for all the support and countless hours of driving me to and from lacrosse practice and games. I would also like the thank the coaching staff at Bishop Shanahan especially coach Heisman and coach Meyers. Also my club coaches Mike Donnelly and Tom Hogan.”
