Why did you choose this college?

West Point is a place like no other. At West Point I will be able to further my academic and athletic career, as well as embark on my military journey.

What are your first memories of the sport?

Playing recreational lacrosse with some of my best friends at just 8 years old and loving the sport the moment I first picked up a stick.

What part of the process was most surprising to you about the recruiting process and what would you like to pass on to those who are going to face it in the future?

The most surprising part of the recruiting process for me was that I committed to a school that I knew nothing until about a couple months ago. For those that will face the recurring process in the future, keep all of your options open and never turn down a school without learning more about it because it might just be the right one for you.

Who would you like to thank for helping you get here?

I would like to thank my family and friends for supporting me and my parents for the sacrifices that they had to take in order to help me succeed. Without my first coaches, school coaches, and club coaches, I definitely would not be here, so thank you for pushing me to become the best player that I can be.
