“I want to thank my parents for their love and support since I was little and picked up my first lacrosse stick. Also, I want to thank all of my coaches while growing up; they helped me mature into the game and get where I am now. A special thanks to Coach Ricky Shwartzberg and Coach Chris Kelly, I would not be where I am without them.”
