What will you major in/study? Undecided

Why did you choose JHU? “When I first stepped on campus at Hopkins, I immediately felt a strong vibe that I knew I wanted to be a part of for four years. I gave a lot of thought to my decision, sleeping on it for several nights, and in the end my gut told me that Hopkins was the best fit.

“Besides its strong academic reputation and legendary lacrosse program, everything else about the school seemed to be right for me. Another important factor was the coach I would be playing for during my college lacrosse career.

“From the instant I met Coach (Dave) Pietramala, I knew it would be a privilege to be a member of the Hopkins lacrosse family and that he would challenge me to be the best student-athlete I can be.”

Outlook for 2015 HS season? “All the players and coaches are excited about the upcoming season and looking forward to competing at the highest level. I am hopeful that I will have an opportunity to contribute to help make the campaign a success.”

Thank You: “First, without the support of my parents and brothers, none of this would have been possible.

“In addition, I would like to thank Coach Roy at Leading Edge and Coach Giarrusso at Seton Hall Prep for all of their help and advice they provided during the process. I also want to thank all the coaches I’ve played for since youth lacrosse who helped me develop my skills over the years, as well as, my teammates at every level who helped make me a better player. I am also grateful to Coach Pietramala for giving me the opportunity to play lacrosse at Johns Hopkins University.”
