What will you major in/study? Undecided

Why did you choose Cornell? “Cornell has always been my dream school. I fell in love with the campus the minute I set foot on it. Cornell offers amazing academic opportunities, as well as an outstanding lacrosse program with a great coaching staff. I am very excited to be given such an incredible opportunity.”

What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “This past season ended too soon, however, I am very proud of the accomplishments we made throughout the season. We had some outstanding senior leadership on the team. This year we will be a much younger team, but full of very talented, hard-working players. We plan to work hard all season and win the State Championship!”

Additional Comments: “I’d like to thank many people who made this incredible opportunity possible. I would first like to thank my club coaches, Mrs. Frazier, Ms. Yusko, Mrs. Cross, and Mrs. Hagar, for helping me through the recruiting process. Their advice and guidance led me to where I am at today. I would also like to thank my High School coach, Coach Orcutt, for assisting me through the recruiting process as well. Without her coaching and support, I would not be the player that I am today.

“Lastly, I would like to thank my family for all of their support. Mom, thank you for driving me to all of my tournaments, practices, and games, keeping me organized throughout the process, and encouraging me every step of the way. Dad, thank you for always giving me the best advice and your endless support. Pat and Kyle, thanks for believing in me and helping me sharpen my skills in the backyard.”
