What do you plan to major in? Political Science
Why did you choose Bryn Athyn? “I was looking for a small school with a growing lacrosse program whose culture focuses on student athletes with an emphasis on being a student. Coach (Tucker) Durkin’s enthusiasm about the Bryn Athyn community and bringing in the right students who will thrive in the classroom as well as on the field is a philosophy my family has instilled for years. The campus is beautiful and allows me to stay close to my roots and grow as a student athlete who will learn more about lifelong service as I want to serve in the public sector.
Thoughts on the 2018 season? “We have a strong core returning and seek a return trip to the playoffs for a second consecutive year. We have grown as a group over my 4 years into a competitive squad and are seeking to continue that growth.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my coaches JP Banks, Charlie Pianko, Chris Pianko and Cory Cooper for helping me to grow as a player over the last 3 years. I would like to thank my grandparents John and Darlene who have nurtured a love for the game in our family. I’d like to thank all my teammates for this great ride we’ve been on since our days at Deep Run, and Coach Dalbey for all he did to support me. Lastly, I’d like to thank my Mom, Dad and sisters Shay and Rori for traveling all over throughout the years.”
Other schools considered: Penn Stare Lehigh, Stevenson, Manhattan College, Widener
