Why did you choose this college?

I chose FIT because of the great education provided by the school and the option to stay in Florida.

What are your first memories of the sport?

My first memory was choosing the number 77 during my first year of lacrosse.

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 most surprising part of the process was how quickly I fell in love with FIT. My first time meeting with Coach Penn and seeing the campus I knew it was where I wanted to be. To the aspiring college athletes, this decision affects the next 4 years of your life, so take your time and choose the school that is right for you.

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

I would like to thank my parents, my teammates, my friends, and my coaches, specifically Coach Duncan for making me play defense in 6th grade and pushing me to get better and be a leader.
