They have pushed me to my limits and made it so that I was able to play in college, and for that, I am forever grateful. I want to thank my older brother for setting such a great example for me and always being there for me. Lastly, I want to thank my little brother for putting up with the endless lacrosse games and tournaments and for always being so supportive.”
