What will you major in/study? Undecided

Why did you choose the school? “I have always wanted to play for a top 10 program that has a chance to compete for an NCAA Championship every year and is strong academically. Maryland gives me the opportunity to do both. When I visited the campus and met with Coach (John) Tillman and his staff, I knew it was the place for me.”

Team’s highlights from 2015 season: “Although we didn’t win the State Championship, I think we had a successful season winning the District 1 Championship and playing in the State Final Four.”

Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents and my sister Alyssa for supporting me in everything I do. I would also like to thank my coach, Tom Lemieux, and the Springfield HS coaching staff, for all that they do on and off the field. They constantly raise the bar, challenge me, and push me to be a better lacrosse player and more importantly a better person. Coach Lemieux has helped me through every step of the recruiting process. I would like to thank coaches Ebe Helm and Jason Christmas for their support and the great opportunity they game me in playing for Duke’s LC 2018 and Duke’s 1. Finally, I would like to thank Coach Tillman and his staff for giving me this opportunity. I am looking forward to being a part of Maryland’s rich lacrosse tradition and excited about competing in the Big Ten.”

Other schools considered? Lehigh, UVA, Penn State, Villanova, Syracuse
