Why did you choose Robert Morris? “I chose the school because it is ‘family.’ Everyone is so close and they are all your brothers. Also, the academics are really good and the campus is beautiful!”
HS team’s outlook for 2015: “At at Francis DeSales this year we plan on getting to the state championship. My teammates and I have high expectations for this season. With three D1 commits we have the potential, but it can’t be done by just three players. We have to come together as one, as a family, and believe and trust one another in every situation.”
Thank you: “I’d like to thank all my coaches these past years, especially coach Bice. He has worked with me with lacrosse and life lessons. He has made me the man I am today.
“Also, thanks to my family for pushing me through thick and thin and picking me up when I was done. They have always been there for me and will continue to be there for me.”
