Outlook for your High School season? “Although I am new to the school and program this year, I believe everyone is ready to get back on the field this season and win a state championship.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank many people for helping and guiding me during this process. I would like to thank Coach Kevin Green for all that he has done for me since I began playing for him in 8th grade, he transformed my game completely as I entered high school.
“I would like to thank Coach J.C. Valore, another coach who turned my game around a lot my first two years of high school. Coach Valore improved not only my game, but my overall lacrosse IQ.
“I would like to thank Bob Thorp for training with me this past year. He pushed me all last summer, helped me through the recruiting process, and also improved my game.
