Why did you choose Princeton? “I felt like it was the best chance for me to grow as a lacrosse player, a student, and a person, in general. I felt so comfortable there and the coaches were great to my family throughout the process. Coaches (head coach Chris) Bates, coach (Greg) Raymond and Coach (Mike) Podgajny were awesome.”

I want to thank (Haverford School) coach (John) Nostrant and coaches (Mark) Petrone, (Travis) Loving and (Paul) O’Grady and Mesa Fresh coach (John) Sims.”
