What will you major in/study? Undecided/Economics or Engineering
Why did you choose Trinity? “I chose Trinity College because I felt it was the best fit for me both academically and geographically. The campus is beautiful and the school has a solid academic reputation, offers great internships and study-abroad opportunities. The icing on the cake is that I will get to continue playing lacrosse in a very strong D3 NESCAC conference under the direction of Coach (Michael) Higgins, Coach (Brian) Praetorius and Coach (Tim) Cimini.”
Outlook for your High School team? “After making it to the play-offs the last three years, and losing twice in the semis, we are hoping to make it to Counties this year, then the LIC, but I couldn’t think of a better way to end my HS career than making it all the way to States.”
Thank You: “First I’d like to thank my family for being my #1 fans and supporters. I’d also like to thank a good friend, Ray Suris, for hooking me up with lacrosse when I was a kid. I’d like to thank my teammates for trusting in me and my abilities.
“Finally, I’d like to thank my varsity Coaches, Kevin Huff, Dan Luciano and Shaun Brogan, for helping shape me into the player I am today.”
