Why did you choose this college?
As soon as I stepped on campus I knew it was the right fit for me both academically and athletically. Also loved the feeling of family that this team has and the competitiveness on the field.

What Advice Would You Give Those Starting the Recruiting Process?
There is no rush and there is a college for everyone and you’ll know when you find that perfect college for you.

Who Would You Like to Thank for Getting You to Here?
I would like to thank my both of my Parents, my brother Timmy, my sister Megan, my teammates for always pushing me, and Coach Bolger for everything he has done to get me where I am today.

What are your first memories of the sport?
My first memories are picking up a stick thanks to my Dad who for years tried to get me to pick it up and playing u9 for Delray Riptide and falling in love with it immediately.

What is Your Favorite Memory From Your High School Career?
My favorite memory is just being able to go out everyday and compete with this special group of guys who I consider my second family.

What is Your Stick Brand? And Why?
I use a Ecd carbon 2.0 and a Ecd Mirage 2.0 and I just love the feel of the stick and how it’s a bit more lightweight.

Which Lacrosse Player Do You Most Want to Have a Meal With and Why?
The player I want to have a meal with would be Jay Carlson. I love the way he plays inside and around the crease.

Do You Watch College & Pro Games and What Are You Watching for to Make You a Better Player?
I watch both and a key thing I watch is the players without the ball. I try to watch those offball guys and the cutters and what they do to get open and when they time a cut to help me get my game better.

What’s Your Go-To Meal After a Game?
Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich and fries

What’s the One Thing Your Teammates Would be Surprised to Know About You?
I used to play the drums.
