Lake Mary High School
True Florida 2021, True National 2021
Why did you choose this college?
From a lacrosse perspective, Limestone has a history as an elite program and I wanted to be part of that. From an academic perspective, since I am going to be a Sports Management major, I liked the fact that it is located almost exactly between Charlotte and Greenville, so I will have a lot of internship opportunities with pro sports organizations.
What are your first memories of the sport?
Going out to the high school for an “intro to lacrosse” mini-camp when I was in 6th grade. I fell in love with the game immediately.
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?
Being part of a great organization like True Lacrosse was really helpful during the recruiting process. My coaches really took an interest in helping me out. They had one on one phone calls with me to check on how I was doing in school. It doesn’t matter how good of a player you are if you don’t have the grades to get into a school. The coaches asked where I was interested in going to college and sent emails – and made calls to coaches advocating for me. Showcases like Apex are really helpful in getting exposure to college coaches as well.
Who would you like to thank for helping you get here?
I’d like to thank my parents, my brother & sister, coaches, teammates and all my friends who have been there for me.
