Why did you choose the school? “It had everything I was looking for in a college: A great lacrosse program and coach, its very competitive at the DIII level, a large number of students, a big open campus, and not too far from home. I took my time choosing and everything seems perfect about it.”

Thank You: “First and foremost, I’d like to thank my mom and dad for all the support they’ve given me over the years. I also owe it to all my coaches I’ve been lucky enough to have – (current) SouthShore coaches JC Valore and Adam Cummins, my Shawnee coach Erik Stilley and (past) even my rec coach Rob Bartholemew. I’d also like to thank Coach (Kevin) Zulauf (Stockton) for all he’s done!
