High School

College Choice
University of North Carolina

Why did you choose this college?
I chose UNC because of the coaches and players. The people make it feel like home and I know I’ll have a close bond with the team as soon as I get there. You also can’t beat how beautiful Chapel Hill is + a great education.

What Advice Would You Give Those Starting the Recruiting Process?
Be patient and respond to everyone. Keep all doors open. The most important thing to me is treat every coach with the same amount of respect. You never know when these coaches are talking about you and you do not want to be the kid that disrespects a coach.

Who Would You Like to Thank for Getting You to Here?
I would like to thank all of my family, coaches, friends and God. My mom and dad have put so much into this process and have supported me since day 1. I couldn’t have done any of this with out them. My coaches have provided me with everything I need to excel at lacrosse. They have spent so much time with me and helping me become the player I am today. Special thanks to Coach Scott and Coach Guthrie, you guys made me love the sport from a young age and taught me everything I need to know.

What are your first memories of the sport?
First memories are playing for the Mohicans. I had only played football my whole life until this. I just remember being faster than everyone so I ball hogged a lot.

What is Your Favorite Memory From Your High School Career?
So far, beating Winter Park after having to come back in the 4th quarter. Hopefully soon it’ll be that we won a state championship.

What is Your Stick Brand? And Why?
I use all ECD stuff. My guy ECD Greg has been getting my right with a bunch of the best sticks. Anyone who needs a new stick, ECD is the best.

Do You Watch College & Pro Games and What Are You Watching for to Make You a Better Player?
The biggest difference between high school and college is the speed of the game, when I watch I just try to wrap my head around that and in-vision myself in those positions.

What’s Your Go-To Meal After a Game?
McDonalds, gotta get the 20 pc nugget, large fry, and a coke. The best

What’s the One Thing Your Teammates Would be Surprised to Know About You?
They know everything, I don’t know whether to be scared or happy about that
