Why did you choose this college?

I chose the University of Tampa because I loved the environment, the campus, team chemistry and the coaches. When I went I on my official visit I felt very welcomed and I seemed to fit right in. It just felt right! I couldn’t see myself going anywhere else.

What are your first memories of the sport?

I remember picking up a stick for the first time and not knowing a thing about lacrosse. As time went on I improved, worked hard and built a love for the game that continues on today.

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?

There wasn’t much that I found surprising about the process what I did find those is you must be patient and give it all you got all the time even when no one is looking. That’s what college coaches look for.

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

I would thank to thank everyone as far back as my first rec team coach, my club coaches, my high school coach, Coach Ross, and all the directors and coaches at Sweetlax for all their help throughout the years making me a better Player and person. But most importantly I’d like to thank my parents without them I would have never been able to get to where I am today, they always pushed me to strive to be the best player I could be and the best person on and off the field.
