What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose the school? “Villanova was the school that had all the things I was looking for when I first started the recruiting process. I wanted to go to a school with great coaches, a competitive schedule, well rounded academics with strong alumni connections, and most importantly, I wanted to represent my area. I have great pride in where I’m from and where I grew up, and by going to Villanova, I get to represent the Philadelphia area that I have so much pride for.”
HS team’s outlook for 2016 season? “We feel this will be a great season for Malvern. Our Seniors are great leaders and some of the best players in the country. Add in the strength of our Junior and Sophomore classes and we are ready to have a great year.”
Thank You: “I would never be in this situation if it wasn’t for my teammates, coaches, and especially, my parents. My Mom and Dad have done so much for me my whole life, and I want to thank them for all the love and support they’ve given me. My Dad was also able to coach me basically my whole life, seeing me grow up as a person as well as a player. He’s taught me so much in life and on the lacrosse field, and I hope to follow in his footsteps. I’d also like to thank Coach White and Earley, my West Chester youth coaches, Coach O’Grady of Mesa Fresh, and Coach McEvoy of Malvern Prep. Every one of these coaches have helped make me the player I am today, and I’m glad to have them mentor me. Finally, I’d like to thank all of my teammates for pushing me and competing with me on the field. I share memories with them I’ll never forget, and have so many more to come.”
