Why did you choose the school? “I chose Loyola because of its strong academics and rich lacrosse tradition. I am excited about being a student-athlete at a relatively small school with small class sizes and a close-knit student community. Coach (Charlie) Toomey and Coach (Matt) Dwan were very sincere, honest, and respectful through the whole recruiting process. They not only emphasized the importance of academics and lacrosse, but also the mission of character development in the Jesuit tradition.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “I am very excited for the 2015 Corning Hawks Lacrosse season. We have a very talented senior class returning and our goal is to build on our Section 4 Championship from last year and make a deep run into the State tournament.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank Coach Toomey and Coach Dwan for their confidence in me and I am excited about being a Loyola Greyhound. I would especially like to thank Coach Martin and Coach Whipple from Sweetlax. Their support and guidance throughout this process was extraordinary. Also, my high school coach, Chris Hogue, who guided me through my first varsity season as a freshman. He had confidence in me and gave me great insight.
“Lastly, and most importantly, I would like to thank my mother, father, and twin sisters, Logan and Riley. Their tireless support, encouragement, and love has meant so much to me!”
Other schools considered? Harvard, Cornell, Notre Dame, and Georgetown
