What will you major in/study? Criminal Justice
Why did you choose Belmont Abbey? “I chose this school for a few reasons. Its location, which is relatively close to home, the lacrosse teams competitiveness, and the teams culture and attitude.
“The school is only about an hour away which I really like. The lacrosse team was ranked 10th in the nation this past year which was very appealing to me. And finally, I had a great time on my visit to the school and just loved the atmosphere. The guys were great to hangout with.”
HS team’s outlook for 2017 season? “This year, our team is going to be very young. We lost 4 seniors, and we’ll only have about 4 seniors this year. But after having a lot of freshman play on varsity last year and suffering a bit from their inexperience, it will be good to have them back this year, especially after having a season of varsity experience under their belts.
“We should be strong on defense again, like last year. Offense will be where we’ll need to put in the most work. We’ll need to run an offense that fits the style of play of our main goal scorers.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my high school coach, Coach Cory Turner for all his help with the recruiting process and all that he has taught me. I know he will take Cuthbertson’s lacrosse program to great places.
“I’d like to thank my grandfather for getting me started on the sport. I wouldn’t be where I am today if he hadn’t bought me my first stick. Lastly, I’d like to thank my parents for their support over the years.”
Other schools considered: Marymount University, Lenoir-Rhyne University
