Why did you choose this college?

I chose PBA because it felt like home to me the second I stepped on campus. I loved the location and being able to stay close home while still having the opportunity to play Division 2 lacrosse. Then lastly I loved the coaching staff and how welcoming they and the players were to me on my visit.

What are your first memories of the sport?

My first memories of lacrosse were throwing around with a starter stick in the backyard with my dad.

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 was how early the process starts and quickly it ramps up once coaches have interest in you. I would say don’t be discouraged if a coach doesn’t respond right away and to always have an open mind about things.

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

I would like to thank my coach, David Oliver, for being with me through every part of this process and constantly pushing me to be better. He is a big reason for the success I have had and the one who helped me end up choosing PBA. I would also like to thank my parents for everything they did to help me get better and help me get seen by coaches. Then lastly I want to thank my teammates past and new for always being there for me and pushing me to better.
