Why did you choose the school? “I chose Denison for the opportunity to play high level competitive lacrosse, while being able to get a excellent education. School size was very important to me during my search, and Denison happened to be the perfect match for me. Also, Coach (Mike) Caravana was a large factor in my decision. It was very evident to me that he is a person with a lot or respect in the Lacrosse community and I know that he is going to push me to get the most out myself as a lacrosse player and as a person. Additionally, he has a strong connection both to Charlottesville and St.Anne’s-Belfield so it only made sense that I would continue my lacrosse career playing for him.”
Thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “This past year the St.Anne’s-Belfield team made it to the state semifinals where we lost to St. Stephen’s- St.Agnes. We had a lot of injury issues and that hurt us as a team but it also allowed a lot of younger guys to get a lot of valuable experience. This season upcoming we are returning a large majority of the players that made large contributions. With that being said, our goal as program perennially is to win the state championship and I think that we are more than capable of making a run again this year.”
Thank You: “I really want to thank my coaches at STAB, especially my Head Coach Bo Perriello, Coach P has always been there for me and had my back. He is someone who has been like a father figure in my life and I am very thankful that he is my Coach. I would also like to thank Coach Price and Coach Rullman for helping outside of practice to get better. As well as Coach Ripley, Coach Garmey, Coach R. Rullman and my St.Anne’s-Belfield teammates from the past two years.
Other schools considered? Williams, Holy Cross, Wesleyan, Connecticut College, Stevenson, Ithaca, Kenyon, Franklin & Marshall, Cabrini, Mary Washington
