What will you major in/study? International Studies
Why did you choose VMI? “Unlike a majority of lacrosse players, I chose VMI for the opportunities that it will present me with after lacrosse. Kids these days just want to play lacrosse in college, and good for them, but they also should look past lacrosse and see where the college could get them.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “My High School is not a lacrosse school at all. Last season 20 out of the 24 players hadn’t played before. With a new coach coming in this year and probably the same amount of new players, I hope to enhance my leadership skills and help the kids grow their game.”
Thank You: “I’d like to thank all of the kids who I’ve played with, my parents for the opportunity to play, my older brother Andrew for teaching me the game, my club coaches for advancing my game, and coaches (Brian) Anken and (Michael) Grimm at VMI for seeing my potential.”
Other schools considered: Army, Navy, Mercer
