What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose Amherst? “Amherst has everything that I want in a school. Its high academic reputation, small class size, competitive lacrosse, and open curriculum attracted me immediately. Coach (Jon) Thompson’s contagious enthusiasm and coaching style sold me on the lacrosse program as well.”
Outlook for your High School team? “Last season we finished 3rd in the State after losing in the Semi-Final. We graduated a lot of starters and team leaders but our underclassmen are ready to step up. Our team chemistry is phenomenal and, I believe, our talent level and coaching is still one of the best in the State.”
Thank You: “I’d like to thank Coach Perriello for sharing his recruiting experience and knowledge with me since Freshmen year. His support, help, and advice made the recruiting process smooth and exciting. I’d also like to thank Coach Price, Coach Ripley, Coach Rullman, and my STAB teammates for making me the lacrosse player I am today.
“Lastly, I’d like to thank my parents and brother for their endless support and effort.”
Other schools considered: Middlebury, Dartmouth, Hamilton, Haverford, Washington and Lee, Stevenson, University of Tampa
