What will you major in/study: Marine Biology or Business
Why did you choose school: “After visiting and seriously looking at about 8 schools, Rutgers stood out for several reasons. Head Coach (Brian) Brecht and Coach (Craig) McDonald proved themselves by building a winning program at Sienna. All the coaches go out of their way with recruits/commits. Rutgers has a great reputation academically, is strong in the majors I am considering, and the athletic facilities overall are incredible.”
Outlook for your high school team: “We only lost seven seniors last season and our defense is young. I think we will be very strong on the defensive side of the field. We lost our three top offensive players though so some of our younger guys will need to step up if we want to get back to the state championship game.”
Thank Yous “I want to thank my mom and dad for all the sacrifices they have made so that I can be on the field, and to my grandfather (Bill, Stevens, Drexel ’63) for putting the goalie stick in my LEFT hand. I play lacrosse left handed but am naturally right-handed.”
