What will you major in/study? International Business 5 Year Masters Program
Why did you choose Monmouth? “I liked Coach (Brian) Fisher and the direction he is going with the program. With his professional experience from Notre Dame and Rutgers, I felt like he would put a great team together.
“I also really like the academic programs and internships Monmouth has to offer. They have a five year master program that really appeals to me. They are also in a great location.
“Monmouth is located between New York and Philadelphia and a mile from the beach. The size of the school is also a benefit for me because I wanted a school that was big enough to have a college experience but not so big that I would not get to know my professors.”
Outlook for your High School team? “After loosing in the State Finals the past four years, we hope to redeem ourselves by taking the State Title with our nine starting seniors.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank Coach Fisher who has given me the opportunity to be part of the Monmouth University Men’s Lacrosse team.
“I would also like to thank all the coaches I have had over the years in lacrosse and ice hockey. I would especially like to thank Pete Schroeder of Trinity High School (KY) who took a chance on me when I transferred my Sophomore year. Thank you to my teammates that I have played with, and Stan Lott who encouraged and and taught me about the recruiting process.
“I also need to thank my parent’s who have guided and supported me along the way.”
