Why did you choose Navy? “The Naval Academy has always been my top choice for a lot of reasons, and I believe it is an ideal fit for me. The outstanding academics, leadership training, and future opportunities it provides are phenomenal. I especially look forward to serving our country as a Naval Officer after graduation. My visit to the Naval Academy and meeting Coach (Rick) Sowell, Coach (Ryan) Wellner and Coach (Michael) Phipps confirmed my desire to attend and play lacrosse at the Naval Academy. Coach Sowell has a great rapport with his players and has done an outstanding job of building a strong lacrosse program which I believe will experience continued success in the future.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my Malvern Prep coaches: John McEvoy, Todd MacFarlane, Steve Holmes, Matt McCormick, and Matt Mackrides for their commitment to improving me as a player.
“Thanks also to my Mesa Fresh coaches, John Nostrant and Bill Holmes for helping me to develop as a player for so many years. I would also like to thank Coach McEvoy and Coach Nostrant for all their help during the recruiting process.
“Finally, I would like to thank my parents for all their support throughout my lacrosse career.”
