Why did you choose Gwynedd Mercy? “Gwynedd Mercy was definitely the right fit for me from the start. It all started when I first got the email from coach (Dana) Lindstrom talking about where he saw me and specific plays that I had that stood out to him. Coach Lindstrom isn’t an ordinary coach, he looked into specifics in my game and told me how impressed he was but at the same time also told me somethings I could work on for the next time he came to see me. I was never 100% sure if I wanted to go to Gwynedd Mercy until I went and visited. We talked about academics and athletics and everything just felt so right for me, it wasn’t only that; the size of the school, the way it looked, everything felt like what I wanted in a college. I’ve always wanted to create my own path and do something I’d be proud of, I chose a school I could learn on and off the field, a school I could fit into not only as a athlete but also as a student. “

Is there anything else you would like to share? “Special thank you to my parents. They’ve played an outstanding part in my recruiting process, finding which school would fit me well and caring so much about the effort I would put into practicing. Another special thank you to my brother, Steven Long, for showing me the game of lacrosse and creating a path for me. He was always the player I strive to be and he was the one to always believe in my abilities to play at a collegiate level. For my coaches, Coach Stout and Coach Measel, they taught me a lot and busted on me every time they knew I was slacking off because they believed I could be a good player.”

What other colleges did you consider? Immaculata, Albright and Neumann
