Why did you choose Navy? “The Naval Academy has always been my top choice for a lot of reasons, and I believe it is an ideal fit for me. The outstanding academics, leadership training, and future opportunities it provides are phenomenal. I especially look forward to serving our country as a Naval Officer after graduation. My visit to the Naval Academy and meeting Coach (Rick) Sowell, Coach (Ryan) Wellner and Coach (Michael) Phipps confirmed my desire to attend and play lacrosse at the Naval Academy. Coach Sowell has a great rapport with his players and has done an outstanding job of building a strong lacrosse program which I believe will experience continued success in the future.”
