What will you major in/study? Business

Why did you choose St. Joe’s? “I chose this school because of the new coaching staff and the energy they have brought to the school along with their plan to put the program on the map. The CAA is a very competitive conference in which I am excited to play. I love everything about the school including the surrounding area. I think it is a great fit and I can’t wait to play for Coach (Taylor) Wray and Coach (Dan) Keating.”

What is your HS team’s outlook for next season? “We have very high expectations for Choate this upcoming season. There are 4 lacrosse PG’s in the 2013 class who hope to contribute to a winning season. We are working hard this off-season and have set high goals for the team. I am looking forward to playing for Coach Velez and being a major contributor to the offense.”

Additional Comments: “I want to thank my parents for supporting me through my lacrosse career as well as the recruiting process. I would also like to thank my coaches, Mike Hoppey and Mike Velez.

“A special thanks to Joe Fowler, Ben Kaminow (Doc’s NYC Lacrosse) and Chip Mayer.”
