Why did you choose this college?

I chose PBA because I felt I was a lacrosse program that I can grow and make a difference at. I felt the coaches and the team were amazing and made me feel at home. I feel PBA academically provides a vast array of choices while I pursue my business degree.

What are your first memories of the sport?

My first memory was my freshman year when I dove into the crease and scored. As a freshman I played attack and moved to defense and have never looked back. One of my best memories is just making friends and the team unity.

What part of the process was most surprising to you about the recruiting process and what would you like to pass on to those who are going to face it in the future?

The recruiting process can be overwhelming because what I have learned that it’s almost like applying or looking for a job. It’s important to make a video as well going to prospect camps and communication with the coaching staff.

Who would you like to thank for helping you get here?

I would like to thank my high school coaches Brett Queener, John Trapani, Joe Meyer, and an out of state coach Brenden Gorman. I would also like to thank my family for their support through the years because without it I wouldn’t be here.
