College Choice
Flagler College

Why did you choose this college?
I chose this college because it is close to home and I really enjoyed the campus and lacrosse program. I believe that Flagler was the best fit college for me and I am proud to call it my future home.

What Advice Would You Give Those Starting the Recruiting Process?
Make sure to reach out to colleges and make sure to communicate with coaches.

Who Would You Like to Thank for Getting You to Here?
I would like to thank God for giving me this chance to live my dream playing college lacrosse. I would also like to thank all of my coaches especially Coach VanTassel helping me find a home. And I would also like to thank my parents who pushed me to be a better person, as well as my conditioning coach pushing me in the weight room.

What are your first memories of the sport?
I first remember going out and trying the sport in 6th grade because I thought it would be fun, and I had no clue what I was getting into.

What is Your Favorite Memory From Your High School Career?
My favorite memory in high school was the conditioning, because the whole team worked hard to accomplish goals and we each showed each other that we were there to push each other.

What is Your Stick Brand? And Why?
I use String King because I like the durable and light shafts and the String King face off head line up are my favorite.

Which Lacrosse Player Do You Most Want to Have a Meal With and Why?
I would like to have a dinner with the “Beast” as he grinds and plays hard like me.

Do You Watch College & Pro Games and What Are You Watching for to Make You a Better Player?
I have watched some of my former teammates games in college and it has pushed me to realize that I had a lot of work to do.

What’s Your Go-To Meal After a Game?
Either Waffle House or Mexican food

What’s the One Thing Your Teammates Would be Surprised to Know About You?
That I had once been a figure skater when I was younger.
