Why did you choose this college?

What Advice Would You Give Those Starting the Recruiting Process?

What is Your Stick Brand? And Why?
DNA head- not much flex and does not break easily.

Hero 3.0 mesh- Soft mesh has always been my favorite, and these strings haven’t popped on me once.

Which Lacrosse Player Do You Most Want to Have a Meal With and Why?
Matt Rambo because I would want to hear what his youth and high school process was like with The Dukes Club and see how it is different today.

Do You Watch College & Pro Games and What Are You Watching for to Make You a Better Player?
One-on-one dodges and how they react to a slide and or a double team.
