Why did you choose school: “I chose the University of Maryland because I feel as if it is the best fit for me academically and athletically. Maryland has consistently been ranked in the top schools for lacrosse and academics and I believe that both of these will challenge me when I arrive at College Park. As for the lacrosse aspect, Maryland has consistently proved that it is a power house. I believe Coach (John) Tillman and his staff will work with me to fulfill my potential as person and player. Also, I really desired to be close to home so my family could come support me. Ultimately, Maryland provides me with a terrific education and the opportunity to win multiple National Championships while making lifelong friends along the way.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank all of my coaches who have developed me into the player I am today. A special thanks to Coach Waters who helped me through this process and always pushes me to do more and to be a better player and person. Also, I would like to thank my family, especially my parents, who sacrifice so much to help me achieve my dreams but also support me 100% of the way. Lastly, my teammates for trusting in me, for without them I would not have this amazing opportunity and be the player I am today.”
Other schools considered: Johns Hopkins, Duke, Virginia, Princeton, and Delaware
