Why did you choose Washington & Lee? “I started my college search looking for schools that, above all, offered excellent academics. Washington and Lee fit this criteria and has a very competitive men’s lacrosse program on top of that. Additionally, its alumni network is one of the best, helping graduates find internships and jobs very effectively.”
Outlook for next season? “We hope to take each individual game as an opportunity to prove that Westminster has the best boys’ lacrosse program in Georgia. If we do that, then a State Championship should follow.”
Thank You: “I am above all thankful that God has given me this opportunity to continue playing lacrosse. My parents of course deserve plenty of credit for supporting me and helping in any way that they could. Coach Tony Souza, Coach Mike Rabbitt, Coach Wesley Speaks, and Coach Jason Breyo have played huge roles in my development as a lacrosse player. I’ve got to give Coach Kevin Hudson special thanks for recognizing my potential early and raising me up all the way from junior high to varsity. I owe a ton of thanks to Martin Molnar, who worked with me on significantly improving my speed and agility in preparation for the 2014 spring season.
“Finally, I am very fortunate to have been playing with such a incredible group of guys at Westminster since I was in junior high.”
Other schools considered: Bowdoin
