What will you major in/study? Economics
Why did you choose Duke? “I chose Duke University because the coaching staff, combined with amazing academics and National Championship caliber lacrosse is hands down the best in the country. When I visited and met the people that are involved with the program I knew it was a program and a University that I wanted to be a part of.”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “The season went almost as well as we had hoped, but we came up a little short losing to Cazenovia in the State finals. However, we had a huge win and the first in school history winning the State semis to Shoreham.
“I’m switching schools next year and I am going to be part of the Brunswick School, which is very exciting. Brunswick is one of the best academic and lacrosse schools in the country, providing me many opportunities to help me succeed.”
Thank You: “There are many people that I could thank, although my Dad deserves the most credit out of anyone. What he has done and effort he has put in to help me become the person I am today in lacrosse and in life is amazing.”
Other schools considered: Georgetown, UVA, UNC, Michigan, Princeton
