Why did you choose this college?
|I chose USF because of the amazing coaches, culture, great location, and good academic opportunities.|
When I toured the campus, I knew this was the place for me and that I wanted to be part of the amazing program they are building.
What Advice Would You Give Those Starting the Recruiting Process?
|My advice would be to start early, attend lots of prospect camps, and make sure that the school you are choosing is a place where you would be happy with or without lacrosse.|
Who Would You Like to Thank for Getting You to Here?
|I would like to thank my mom and dad for always supporting me and Coach Dan Toole my high school coach, my club Coach Chris Robinson along with Melissa Villanti, the director of M&D Orlando for all of their encouragement and guidance. Also, a big thank you to Chris Bocklet, who is my lacrosse trainer and mentor, Tom Gormely and AJ Basso, from Tork Sports Performance, they have put so much time and effort into making me a better lacrosse player. Also, thank you to the USF coaches for believing in me!|
What are your first memories of the sport?
|One of my first memories of lacrosse was going to Dick’s Sporting Goods with my dad and buying a pink STX set. I was in second grade, and I fell in love with the sport.|
What is Your Favorite Memory From Your High School Career?
|One of my favorite memories from high school was our first game last season and when we beat Lake Mary by one point.|
What is Your Stick Brand? And Why?

Which Lacrosse Player Do You Most Want to Have a Meal With and Why?
|I would love to have a meal with Belle Smith, she is an attacker like me. She has such passion and knowledge about the game.|
Do You Watch College & Pro Games and What Are You Watching for to Make You a Better Player?
|Yes, I watch both college and pro games. When I watch the games, I look to see what the players in my position are doing and what separates them from their competition. I try to add those skills to my game.|
