Why did you choose Richmond? “I chose the University of Richmond because it is the best fit for me, academically and for lacrosse. At the first prospect camp I did at UR two years ago, I remember feeling like ‘Wow, this place is special.’ The team environment is so supportive and positive. I felt an immediate connection to the coaches and players. Everyone was very welcoming and I felt at home right away. I am beyond excited to be part of this winning program!”

Is there anything else you would like to share? “I would like to thank Coach Mark Pinkerton who has coached me since fifth grade. Thank you, Coach Pinkerton, for teaching me so much about lacrosse, even showing me how to hold a lacrosse stick at our very first lesson. Thank you for helping me through the recruiting process. You took my game to the next level and I will forever be so appreciative of the time you spent with me. I would also like to thank my trainer, Coach Rich Garcia, for working with me on strength and speed, and always having me prepared for events and games. Lastly, thank you to my parents for being at every game, tournament, and prospect clinic, usually cheering a little too loudly. I am so grateful to have such a supportive family and I love you all!”
