Why did you choose the school? “I wanted to go to a school were I felt that I was able to see as much field time as possible, while being a top competitor. FSC has a strong program and will be a tough competitor for the D2 title in the future. The coaches and players were great every time that I visited, and I couldn’t ask for a better environment to excel in academically and athletically.”
How did the 2013 HS season go? “Coming into this season I knew we had the talent to be a dominant team in Missouri. Although we had a rough start to the beginning of the season, I wasn’t too worried. We just needed to gel together as a team and work together. Once we focused and gelled, we became united in our efforts to reach our goal. We won the state championship due to a true team effort.”
Thank You: “I first tried playing lacrosse my freshman year in high school. If it wasn’t for my friend, Dominic Polizzi, I never would have played lacrosse in the first place. I want to thank Coach Pete Genovese for teaching me to play and to love the game. I want to thank my Varsity coaches – Eddie Condon, Jim Shaw, Mike Donio, who in my sophomore year and beyond, helped me to improve my skills and deepen my love of the game.
“I want to thank my MO 22 coaches – Andy Kay and Mark Seyer, and the MO 22 Club. The opportunities provided from this experience truly helped me to take my game to the next level.
“I want to thank everyone who supported our teams, all four years, whether we were winning, or otherwise.
“Finally I want to thank my parents and my family. They have been supporting me from day one and I know they will continue to support me in the future as I continue to play.”
