What will you major in/study? Business Management or Sports Management
Why did you choose Merrimack? “Academically it is a perfect fit. The small classroom setting is just what I am looking for. The campus is small and the students are friendly. Coach (Mike) Morgan’s coaching style and work ethic is exactly what I want. Players on the team love Merrimack and have a mission to win a championship, and I think they have the potential to do so..”
Outlook for your High School team? “We are a young team and have a lot to learn, because we play in the FCIAC with a tough schedule. If players put in the hard work, the results will show. Being a captain, I need to step up this year and put Trumbull on the map.”
Thank You: “I’d like to thank Trumbull Youth Lacrosse for having founded the Lacrosse program in Trumbull. I’d also like to thank my Bulldog Lacrosse coaches; Brian Adkins and Graham Niemi (as well as all the other coaches) who’ve guided me, and coached me throughout the process to become the player I am today. Furthermore, I’d like to thank my high school coach, Jim Kammerman, for being tough on me when I needed to step up and exceed my expectations. Finally, I’d especially like to thank my Parents Randy, and Julie Howes, for suggesting I play Lacrosse at an early age; and for donating numerous hours of their time, weekends traveling, and spending thousands of dollars so I could reach my dream of playing lacrosse at the collegiate level.”
Other schools considered: Le Moyne, Sacred Heart, High Point, Fairfield, Rutgers
