Why did you choose Hartford? “Hartford has a great Physical Therapy program and a great lacrosse program. What more could I ask for?

I would also like to thank my youth coaches, Desi and Lou Gonzalez, and Eric Dorn for helping me develop my skills. And most of all I would like to thank my family for supporting me and giving me the opportunity to play for such great programs and coaches.”
