What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose St. Joe’s? “My interactions with Coach (Taylor) Wray, Coach Dan Keating and Coach Mike Keating led me to choose St. Joe’s. Their intensity, belief in the positive direction of the lacrosse program and the support that St. Joe’s is giving the team made it an easy decision.
All the players I visited with also were very welcoming. The strong business school reputation, the beautiful campus and that fact that my grandfather attended St. Joe’s also had a lot to do with the choice.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for the season? “This season we are going to work hard and hope to make it to the Virginia State Championship game for the tenth consecutive year.”
Additional Comments: “I would like to thank Coach (Taylor) Wray, Coach Dan Keating and Coach Mike Keating for giving me the opportunity to attend St. Joe’s and play lacrosse there. I would also like to thank my High School Coaches, Kevin Helmick and Casey Haile for everything that they have done for me and my parents for all their sacrifices.”
