Why did you choose Penn State? “Penn State offers great academics as well as a chance to compete against the best lacrosse teams in the country. Coach (Jeff) Tambroni and his staff are building a team that will compete for a national championship year after year. This as well as the beautiful campus helped me to choose Penn State.”
Outlook for 2015 High School Season? “I am hoping to make varsity so I can learn from the great coaching staff and returning players from last year’s undefeated team.”
Thank You: “I would first like to thank my parents for their support, and for taking me to all the different tournaments that have gotten me here. I would also like to thank my older brother, Jarrett, for help and support. He pushes me whether it’s in the weight-room, on the field, or even to become a better person. My grandparents are also a huge part of where I am today. They come to every one of my games, rain or shine to support.
“I would also like to thank all of my coaches: John McEvoy, Todd MacFarlane, Matt Mackrides (Malvern Prep), Ebe Helm, Jason Christmas (Dukes LC) Billy McKinney, Eric Gregg (HHH/Big4), Scott Gabrielsen, Glenn White (West Chester) and Tom Dunn, Joe Dugan (St. Agnes football). They all have played a huge part and continue to contribute to my athletic development.”
