Why did you choose CGA? “I always have wanted to serve my country. I fell in love with the Coast Guard Academy during a summer visit with my parents before my sophomore year of high school. After researching the Coast Guard and its mission, I realized that I had found my military “fit”. There is no way that I could pass up the opportunity to play lacrosse for a great coach like Coach (Ray) La Forte, get an excellent education, and serve my country.”
Outlook for your High School team? “We are off to a slow start but believe that we have the talent and desire to make a long run in the playoffs.”
Thank You: “I want to thank my parents for giving me the support and opportunity to chase my dream of playing lacrosse at a service academy. I want to thank my first youth coaches at Fox Valley Lacrosse (Lamparelli, Thompson & McGinnis) for sparking my love of lacrosse. Finally, I especially want to thank Coach Benages at Naperville North High School for shaping me into the player and person that I am today.”
