Why did you choose this school?
“I started looking at Rollins College because I’ve always known that I wanted to attend a school in the south to enjoy the warmer weather. When I went to visit Rollins I fell in love with the campus and the town. Rollins has a great academic reputation and an extremely competitive lacrosse program. Rollins is consistently a top DII program. The coaches all really stood out to me because of their positive attitudes and the relationships that Coaches (Dennis) Short and TK (Tom Kienle) have created with their players. It is a great environment that I want to be part of!”

HS team’s outlook for 2016 season? “We have a great core group of players coming back this season and we once again hope to win the league title!”

People to thank: “I want to thank my parents for always being supportive over the years with my lacrosse needs. Coach Tom Gannon who initially taught me the game at WissLax, my high school coach, Patty Kovacs, DJ and the rest of the Ultimate staff. I really want to thank Coach Schlesinger, as he has been the best coach I’ve ever had and helped me improve not only as a lax player but also as a person.”
