What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose La Salle? “I chose La Salle University because it is the perfect fit for me: the campus, the business school, and the overall atmosphere is everything I was looking for! Coach Candace (Taglianetti Bossell) and her players really made me feel welcome. I can tell how close they are on and off the field. I can’t wait to be a part of the La Salle Lacrosse family and continue my academic and athletic career there!”
2016 HS season highlights/outlook for 2017? “Our Carroll team motto is “Family Over Everything” and that is what helped us achieve great things and brought us through tough times. My teammates and I celebrated a great win over Agnes Irwin School and felt the hard loss against Conestoga High School closing our season. We were a very young team this year and felt great about our accomplishments and know we are capable of great things going forward such as a state title. I am very excited for the upcoming season and I’m very fortunate to be a part of such a great program with great coaches and teammates!”
Thank You: “First, I want to thank my parents and brothers who were nothing but supportive in every way possible throughout this process; their guidance and advice helped me so much, I cannot thank them enough! Also, I want thank my Archbishop Carroll Coach, Lorraine Beers, because without her this would not be possible. Thank you for everything you have done for me Coach Beers, I would not be where I am today if it weren’t for your coaching and direction.
“Lastly, I want to thank everyone who supported and believed in me such as my teammates, friends, family, Godparents, coaches (Coach George Hopson, Coach Jess Lake, Coach Fraizer, Coach Yusko, and Coach Markle) without these people this would not be possible so thank you!!”
Other schools considered: Monmouth University, High Point University, Virginia Commonwealth University, George Mason University, University of South California, Elon University
