What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose the school? “I chose Washington College because of its high reputation for both academics and athletics. It would also be an honor to play under the Coach (Jeff) Shirk and Coach (Chris) Miller, and the rest of the staff to help compete for conference and national championships. I also chose Washington College because I feel comfortable with the atmosphere and the area. I have family friends up in Chestertown and I am up in the town every year. As an avid outdoorsman, the school and area is a perfect fit for me.”
Thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “I am transferring to Cape Henry Collegiate for my senior year from Norfolk Collegiate. I am hoping for a successful season as well as a very positive and winning experience. I have played with many of the guys on the Cape Henry team over the summer, and I believe we have strong potential to have a great season.”
Thank You: “First I would like to thank my parents and brother for allowing me the opportunity to have a chance to play lacrosse in college. Without their support I couldn’t have this opportunity. I would also like to thank my Dad again because he has been my coach since I started playing. Many thanks to Coaches Duquette, Rusbuldt, Standing, Leahy, McDonald, Lonergan, and Kelly.”
Other schools considered? Roanoke, Lynchburg, Washington & Lee
