Why did you choose Rhodes? “I chose Rhodes College because of its excellent academic reputation and because it felt like a natural fit the first time I stepped foot on campus and met Coach (Dave) Zazzaro. With this upcoming season being only the third one in school history, I think that we are an up and coming program with a lot of potential given the talent Coach Z has brought in. Finally, with Rhodes being in Memphis, the location in the South was a big plus to me compared to many other lacrosse schools.”
Outlook for upcoming season? “This season our team has a chance to be the best in our school’s history. We return seven starters and have one of our best middies back from injury. We open our season with a trip to Nashville to play University School of Nashville and Ravenwood. We travel to Indiana later in the season to take on Culver Academy in our biggest test of the season. We seniors look forward to taking advantage of the talent on our team and having a fun and successful season.”
Thank You: “Thank you to my school coach, Collin Welsh, for helping me on and off the field with the recruiting process these last two years. Also, thanks to Coach Pat Dimento at No-Excuse for teaching me much of what I know about the game. Thank you to my parents for supporting me through my lacrosse career. One last thank you to all my teammates who have pushed me at practice, ready for a big year with y’all.”
Other schools considered: High Point, Tampa
