Why did you choose the school? “When I first visited the campus at Salisbury University I could see myself as a successful student athlete there.

I felt very comfortable with Coach (Jim) Berkman and his staff, and look forward to always be competing for a National Championship and working hard to be the best lacrosse player I can be.”
Team’s highlights from 2015 season: “We had a great season that unfortunately was ended early in the PCL Championship to our rival team St. Joe’s Prep. I look forward to this season with a very strong and talented senior class that will help carry La Salle to another PCL Championship and hopefully the State Championship.”
Thank You: “Firstly, I would like to thank my coaches from La Salle including Coach Leahy, Coach Reasch, Coach Harrington, and Coach Dougherty as well as my past coaches from grade school for sculpting me as a lacrosse player.
“Also, I would like to thank my Club Coaches from LB3 Phillie Elite. Especially Coach OMB, Coach JP, and Coach Liam for helping me showcase my skills in the club lacrosse summer circuit.
“Next, I would like to thank Coach Dave Sowers (Upper Dublin High School) for coaching me at a young age and really getting me to love the game of lacrosse. Also I would like to thank Coach Haldy Gifford (Upper Dublin High School) for always being there for me when I needed tuning up and for helping me learn some valuable life lessons.
“I would also like to give a big thanks my oldest brother, Patrick, for mentoring me from a young age to be the lacrosse player and man I am today, and for also helping me in the recruiting process.
