What will you major in/study? Mechanical Engineering
Why did you choose the school? “I choose to attend RPI because of its outstanding academic reputation and strong lacrosse team.”
Thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “The Marshfield Rams’ past season was successful as we went 11-1 in league play. Unfortunately, we ran into a strong Wellesley team in the first round of the Massachusetts Division 1 State Tournament. The Marshfield Rams will undoubtedly dominate the Atlantic Coast League again in 2015. We have a number of strong returning players in all positions from goalie through to attack. I’m looking forward to my senior year on the team and think we have a shot to go deeper into the playoffs next season.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank Jake Jones (my Marshfield High coach) and Rick Bagby (my Black Jacks coach) for all of the lacrosse knowledge and skills they’ve helped me develop over the past few years. I enjoy playing for both of them.”
Other schools considered? Georgia Tech, UMass Lowell
