What will you major in/study? Business

Why did you choose Ursinus? “The first time I visited I knew Ursinus is where I wanted to go. I loved the location, the campus and the academics there. Coach (Jamie) Steele and Coach (Gary Mercadante) Merc made it hard for me to see myself anywhere else. I also got along with the team very well. Ursinus has a great reputation and I have heard only good things from people who have gone there. I’m looking forward to my four years at Ursinus.”

What’s your HS team’s outlook for next season: “Although we lost a lot of talent, both offensively and defensively, I think we will be good. Our senior class is ready to step up and with the help of the underclassmen, we can win a lot of games in a competitive league.”

Additional Comments: “I’d like to thank my family for all that they have done for me related to lacrosse and outside lacrosse. I’d also like to thank all my coaches that have helped me succeed: Coach (Frank) Urso, Coach (Jim) Snow, Coach (Joe) Kivlen, Coach (Brian) Neary, Coach (John) Sims. Next I’d like to thank Mr. Raucci for all the support. Finally, I’d like to thank the Ursinus coaching staff for giving me this opportunity.”
