Why did you choose Stony Brook? “For me, Stony Brook really felt like the right choice. The academic rigor of the University, especially the prestige of the Engineering program, along with top level lacrosse at a place I really felt like I fit in. Coach (Jim) Nagle, Coach (Craig) Gibson, and Coach (Andrew) Watkins were all extremely welcoming and I really like the way they coach. All the players I met had very positive things to say about Stony Brook, both academically and athletically. Overall, Stony Brook felt like a great choice for me.”
Thoughts on the upcoming HS lacrosse season? “We’re all extremely excited for the spring season. This year we are lucky to have lots of key returning players, including an entire returning starting defense. We’re looking to work hard and hopefully see results in the season.”
Thank You: “I really would like to thank all my coaches, my parents, and everyone else that helped me throughout this process. The support and understanding has been great throughout this experience. I’ve had to do lots of traveling and lots of decision making, and my parents and family have been there for me throughout it all. All my coaches have been extremely helpful, from contacting coaches to assisting me in my tougher decisions. Without them, this process and my whole lacrosse career wouldn’t be possible.”
Other schools considered: Le Moyne, Colgate, Penn
