Why did you choose Swarthmore? “I chose to commit to Swarthmore first and foremost because of the incredible academics and because I felt very welcomed on campus by Coach Gress and Coach Danenza. The feeling of a small school/campus combined with the close proximity to Philadelphia is the best of both worlds, and the opportunity to play high level lacrosse was too good to turn down.”
HS team’s 2017 highlights: Advanced to the league semi-finals.
Thank You: “Firstly, I’d like to thank my parents and family for providing me with continuous support throughout the recruiting process.
“I’d also like to thank the entire 3d NorCal and 3d Lacrosse organization, and specifically Coach Kruger and Coach Jacoby, who have both been unbelievably supportive and helpful over the past couple of years. Their advice and expertise has helped me in many ways, and I am very thankful for this.
“Lastly I’d like to thank my teammates for continuously pushing me to play the best lacrosse possible and for being some of my best friends over the past few years.”
