Why did you choose school:
“I chose Virginia because it has the perfect combination of excellent academics and a top notch lacrosse program. UVA is just the right distance from home. After my second visit, I believed that it was the best fit for me. When visiting, Coach (Dom) Starsia and Coach (Marc) Van Arsdale made me feel at home.”

Outlook for your high school team:
“Coach Urso always fields a competitive team. We have a lot of good upperclassmen that will provide leadership, which will help this year. I believe we will be competing for another Central League Title and hopefully qualify for States.”

Other comments:
“There are many coaches who I give credit for making me a better lacrosse player and person. I am very thankful and grateful to them.

“From Dukes, I would like to thank Coach Helm, Coach Christmas and the rest of the Dukes coaches for their time and effort in helping me with the recruiting process.

“From HHH/Big 4 Coaches McKinney and Gregg have really challenged me to step up my game.

“My Garnet Valley coaches: Coach Urso, Coach Snow, and Coach Kivlen – for giving me an opportunity to play with the Garnet Valley Jags Varsity club during the fall and summer.

“Thank you to the BYC coaches and a special thanks to Coach Nealon for coaching me since I first picked up a stick.
