Congratulations to Trace on his college choice and good luck in the future! (Trace, the picture uploaded with your SweetLax photo did not shrink properly and the color scheme didn’t work, can you re-submit another version, hopefully a JPEG format?)
University of Maryland
Why did you choose this college?
I want to have the best opportunity I can to be successful while competing at the highest level. After talking to the coaches and seeing all the potential the school has to offer me it was an easy decision to make. Not even mentioning the schools unparalleled lacrosse history. As soon as I stepped on the Maryland campus I knew I wanted to be a Terrapin.
What are your first memories of the sport?
Having my oldest cousin who played at the Virginia Military Institute teach me how to throw and catch.
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 part that surprised me was how exciting it was. I first thought it would be scary but it really wasn’t. My best advice is to take your time with the process. Find a school that fits your values and gives you the best chance to succeed.
Who would you like to thank for helping you get here?
I would like to thank my family, friends and all of my coaches up to this point. Without you guys I would not be the player or person I am. Thank you for shaping and coaching me to be who I am today.
