Why did you choose Marquette? “Marquette is not only a great school, but it has all the qualities a student – athlete could ask for. Great people, great facilities, and great atmosphere. I love everything that Coach (Joe) Amplo and (Stephen) Brundage stand for, and expect out of their players. It gave me an unexplainable feeling that made me feel like I was at home.”
HS team’s outlook for 2018 season? “This upcoming high school season is going to be one to remember. After being successful last year as a young team, we only have room to grow. Being older, more developed, and more experienced, we are ready to push the standards through the roof and show the world who the Hun Lacrosse team is, and that we came to play.”
Thank You: “I’d like to thank many people who helped me throughout the years:
“My mother and father have been invested in me since third grade. All the tournaments, practices, training sessions, fees, and everything in between, have helped me get to where I am today.
“My Father, and the Shamrocks Lacrosse Club have been my core, teaching me every fundamental in the book. Throughout my youth, they’ve been supportive, yet demanding in what was expected of me, and I can not owe enough of my success to them.
“Ebe Helm and the Dukes Lacrosse Family who has helped showcase my abilities to the world. Everything that the Dukes has done for me, from commutation with coaches, to critiquing my game, to giving me tips in order to enhance my chances of being seen and recruited, have led me to where I am today.
“MV Whitlow and the Hun School Lacrosse team have developed my game in order to compete at the highest level. Coach Whitlow and Coach Snow have demanded more of me than I have ever had before, and pushed me to be as great of a player as I can be.
“Coach Tony Reese has been a huge factor in my success as an athlete and as a person, motivating me to be hard working, dedicated, and to be a great person. It was more than just lacrosse to him, it is a lifestyle.”
