Why did you choose Rutgers? “There is nothing not to love about Rutgers University. As soon as I stepped on the campus, I knew it was the perfect fit for me both academically and athletically. The coaching staff is amazing and the team made me feel right at home. Also, I am more than ecstatic to have the opportunity to compete in the Big 10 with a group of the best teams in the country.”
Additional Comments: “First and most importantly, I want to thank my family. Mom, you are my rock and you have supported me through everything in my life. Dad, thanks for always being by my side. My big brother, Adam, thank you for introducing me to the sport of lacrosse and keeping me motivated to do my best. My little brother, Brian, thanks for being my travel buddy during all of my lacrosse adventures.
“Secondly, a big thanks to Michele Dejuliis, Jen Duckenfield, and the whole staff from Ultimate Goal for their support, patience, and advice. To my High School coach, Ellen Reilly, who was my youth lacrosse coach. Lastly, a big shoutout to Matt Rieker from Mangol Strength and Conditioning for always making me work to my full potential.
