I also want to thank Duke’s Lacrosse coach Ebe Helm, who has been a huge help in this process. Also want to thank Coach Jason Christmas for all of his support from the time I was playing for him in Ashbee until now. A thanks also goes out to the NXT coaches: Coach Brett Manney and Coach Andy Hayes who have been great to me and were a big help in the process.
“I would like to thank my parents, who have been terrific throughout my entire lacrosse career and they never miss a game. Finally, I would like to thank my older brother, Kevin, who has been a great teacher in the sport of lacrosse to me and a great role model. He is a great player and an even better person.”
