What will you major in/study? Economics
Why did you choose Cortland? “When I was walking around campus I could tell it was a place I could see myself at for the next four years with or without lacrosse.
“The school atmosphere and support for the sports teams there is very strong which is something I wanted coming from a high school in which it’s that way.
“Lacrosse wise there is no better place to play when it comes to a winning tradition and the opportunity to win a national championship every year. Plus both Coach (Steve) Beville and Coach (Nick) Fiorentino are great guys who will be able to make me both a better player on the field and better man off the field.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “This upcoming season, I think we are going to continue to surprise some people. Last year we had our first winning season since ’09 going 12-6 and I think this year we are only going to improve on that. We are more committed as a team than we’ve ever been from our seniors down to our freshman. Our team goals this year are to win our league after coming in second last year and to win at least one game in the county tournament.”
Thank You: “The first people I want to thank are my parents and sisters. They’ve been there for me supporting me throughout my entire lacrosse career coming to all of my games.
“I do especially want to thank my Dad whose been my coach my entire life and without him I wouldn’t be the player or person I am today. I’d also like to thank everyone at Trilogy lacrosse from Coach Boyle and Coach Mangan to all the other great coaches I’ve had over the years.
“Lastly, I’d like to thank my teammates and friends who’ve been playing with me both recently and since day one. We’ve all pushed each other to become better players and it has all started to work out or has worked out for us.”
Other schools considered: Franklin & Marshall, Lynchburg, Arcadia
