Why did you choose St. John’s? “I chose St. John’s because it is an established lacrosse program and I was very impressed with Coach (Jason) Miller and his staff. I loved the campus and the players. St. John’s offers great academics, community service and is close to New York City. It’s a Catholic school that is a perfect distance from home.”

Additional Comments: “I would like to sincerely thank my coaches at CB West: Coach Matt Coverdale, Coach Stephen Hogan, Coach Richard Lyons and Coach Albert Snyder. They always push me to be a better player and a strong leader.
“I would also like to thank Coach Paul McGovern, my coach for Bucks Select, who has elevated my level of defensive play.
“Lastly, I would like to thank my brother Timmy, who is my teammate both on and off the lacrosse field, my sister Paige and most importantly, my parents, for always supporting me.”
