Thank You: “I’d like to thank, first and foremost, my high school coach, Dee Cross, and my club coach, Anne Pillion. Not only did they help me become a better lacrosse player and ready to play at the next level but they helped me become a better person off the field as well.
“I’d next like to thank my parents for all their support and sacrifices so I could pursue this sport throughout the years. Thanks to my dad, especially, for always working with me in the off season .
“Finally, I’d like to give a special shout out to my Aunt Gig, my first lacrosse coach, who always said “Offense sells tickets, defense wins games!”
