What will you major in/study? Undecided

Why did you choose Colgate? “Colgate offers an exceptional education and has an outstanding lacrosse team. Coach Murphy, Coach Toomy, and Coach Abbott have a great program and they really made it easy to see why Colgate was such a great fit for me as a player and as a person.”

What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “Our three seniors did a great job of leading us to our second ever State Playoff game last year. The attack also dominated throughout the season and had more than 300 total points combined. This year we have our whole starting defense coming back, as well as younger players who matured last year that will make big contributions this season.”

Additional Comments: “I’d like to thank all of my High School Coaches John Schein, Greg Lelek, and especially Andy Briggs, who has been my coach since middle school. I would also like to thank Brian Neary and Michael Colleouri from HEADstrong for helping me to become a better lacrosse player and getting exposure to college coaches.”

Other schools considered: Air Force Academy, Lehigh, Holy Cross, Drexel, Brown
