Graduation Year: 2017

Position: Defense

College Choice: United States Military Academy at West Point

Club Affiliation: Philadelphia Freedom

Major lacrosse honors: MVP Tournament All-Star, Second Team All Ches-Mont

What will you major in/study? Engineering

Why did you choose this school? “I believe West Point is a perfect fit for me. With its outstanding lacrosse program, world class education, and the opportunity to serve our country, it has always been my dream school. West Point’s lacrosse program is really one big family and coach (Joe) Alberici and his staff made me feel like a member of their family.”

Outlook for 2017 HS season? “We lost a couple key seniors, but with a strong underclass group those gaps will be filled. With many returning playmakers, we should make a far run into playoffs.”

People to thank: “I would like to thank my mom and dad for being great role models and always supporting me. Also, I’d like to thank Coach Miller and Coach Goforth for assisting me in this process and helping me become a better lacrosse player over the last couple years. I would also like to thank Coach Meyers and Coach Heisman for helping me to improve as a player and being great high school coaches.”

Other schools considered: Fairfield, Swarthmore
