I chose Cleveland State University because of the academic career paths that the school offers as well as the ability to play competitive lacrosse under the wing of a fantastic coaching staff. Coach Sheridan and Coach German emanate a great energy. As a goalie, it is an amazing opportunity to have Coach Bernlohr’s experience and expertise.
