What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose Loyola? “I chose Loyola because the coaches were all really cool and they made me feel like family.
“The players were welcoming, and one of them (James Collins) went to ESD as well and he will be a senior at Loyola when I’m a freshman so I will know somebody when I get there.
“Also, I wanted to be on a team that would contend year in and year out for a National Championship, and I believe that Loyola is going to continue to be a powerhouse program for many years to come with the great coaches and facilities it has. Not only does Loyola have a great lacrosse team, but they also have a very good business school, which is what I want to major in.”
Outlook for your team for the rest of the season? “Our team is looking good right now. Currently we’re 9-4 (5-1 in district), with our only District loss coming from the defending State Champions, Highland Park. We have a big game coming up against Jesuit that will help decide what seed we will be come playoff time and we definitely have the players to be State Champions this year.”
Other schools considered: Dartmouth, Marquette, Air Force, Rutgers
