What will you major in/study? Undecided / Business
Why did you choose Saint Leo? “When I first toured Saint Leo, I loved the campus and the school overall. It felt like a place that I could call home for the next year’s of my life. I am looking at studying business but I am unsure what part of business I would like to study. Saint Leo offers many great majors. Business Management, Accounting/Finances intrigue me. I enjoy being a part of the lacrosse team and I think I will excel in my skill of the game playing at the next level. Saint Leo lacrosse is a strong program that continues to succeed. I look forward to the next year’s of my life at Saint Leo.”
HS team’s outlook for 2016 season? “The Academy of Holy Angels lacrosse team is looking great! Our offense is strong and coming together and our defense is solid. We will be challenged by our new conference but we will be a hard competitor.”
Thank You: “As I continue my lacrosse career, I would like to thank a few people. First off, my parents for being another side coacheck and always believing in me. I would also like to thank my neighbors, Mike and Jack Alberts. They first got me interested in the sport and I have loved it ever since.
“A great thank you to Homegrown Lacrosse, especially Aron Lipkin and Paige Wilcox for teaching me the things I need to know to play at a high level. The Homegrown Staff is like a second family to me.
“Lastly, I would like to thank Coach (Brad) Jorgensen for giving me the opportunity to play with Saint Leo.”
