What will you major in/study? Leaning towards studying in the field of Environmental Science.
Why did you choose the school? “I loved the coaches and players on the team. The school’s environment and close proximity to nature made it a place I would enjoy as well as a great place to study in the field of Environmental Science. The block plan schedule that Colorado College has was also something that I found great interest in. The facilities are top notch and I loved everything about the school and the program.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “After making it to the Final Four last year I feel that this year will be even better. We lost some key seniors, but there are some juniors that are going to fill those roles well. We bring back many starters and key players on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball. I think we have even greater team chemistry from last year and we are going to have a great season this year.”
Thank You: “I would like to first of all thank my parents. They have been very supportive of me through all of my athletic endeavors and were the ones that have brought me around to all of my recruiting events and high school games and supported me. I would like to thank Coach Robin Ammons, the coach who taught me the game and helped me develop greatly in my first few years of playing lacrosse. I would like to thank Coach Frank Daniels and all the coaches that helped me so much in my early lacrosse development as well. I would like to thank Coach Pete Hudecki, my Crush National coach who helped me so much this past summer in recruiting and skill development. Lastly I would like to thank my high school coach, Carl Pfaff, for helping me all throughout high school and all my teammates for helping me get to where I am in my lacrosse career.”
