What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose Hobart? “My family has some history there. My father and uncles went to Hobart and played lacrosse and football during the 80’s and early 90’s. They were a part of three national championship teams and that has been a part of my life since I can remember. I looked at a number of schools but kept coming back to Hobart because of the academics, tradition, and most importantly Coach (Greg) Raymond and his staff. I knew I could play for them the minute I met them.”
Outlook for 2015 HS team? “I’m excited for this upcoming season. We have a great group of kids and our two new coaches, Coach Beaney & Price are great guys that have played the game at the collegiate level and make playing for them fun. We have a good group of seniors and our younger guys should be very well led.”
Thank You: “There are a number of people that have helped me & supported me during my lacrosse carreer; My coaches Kevin Martin & Andrew Whipple from SweetLax, and Jack Beaney from HF-L. My parents who introduced me to the game and have taught me how to be my best. Lastly, my grandparents who are my biggest fans and are always there win or lose.”
Other schools considered: Colgate, Bucknell, Villanova & West Point
