Why did you choose the school? “I chose Hobart for three main reasons. First it was a good fit. Second I was extremely impressed with coaching staff lead by Coach Raymond. Lastly I wanted to be a part of the unique lacrosse culture at Hobart that has roots going back to the early days of lacrosse.”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “My last season as a Blake Bear was very successful. After years of competition we were finally able to beat our rivals, Benilde Red Knights, and subsequently went to the state tournament. I am extremely excited for next year. The rock, what we call our defense, will be solid next year with Eric Hartman committed to Colby, Crey Bankes committed to Michigan, and myself all returning to give the Bears an immovable solid rock core.”
