What will you major in/study? Business

Why did you choose this school? “I chose Hofstra because I fell in love with the campus as soon as I stepped on it; and it is close to New York. The academics are excellent as they have one of the top business programs. Also, I loved the atmosphere there and felt I could fit in. At Hofstra the coaches know the game of lacrosse very well and they are good at what they do.”

Outlook for 2017 HS season? “We lost many of great seniors that had tons of experience. This year we have a lot of underclassmen coming up and a few upperclassmen returning from last year. We look to compete for Chest-Monts as well as Districts and States.”

People to thank: “I would like to first thank my Family. Mom and Dad, I can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done for me to get me here. I want to thank my travel coaches, Coach Hammond and Coach Churchey, for all the help they’ve done. I would also like to thank Coach (Bob) Miller of Freedom Lacrosse with helping me become a better player and help through the recruiting process. I would also like to thank my High School Coaches, Coach (Jon) Heisman and Coach (Paul) Meyers for coaching me and pushing me to become a better player on and off the field, and be a leader.”

Other schools considered: Marist, Monmouth
