What will you major in/study? Sports Management
Why did you choose Albertus Magnus? “After I stayed the night there and met all the guys on the team, I knew it was the perfect fit. It’s a small school which will allow me to connect to my peers and professors more than I would at a larger school. Also, the guys on the team and I got along really well.”
HS team’s outlook for 2017 season? “I think we will be pretty solid this season. I think we will qualify for SWC’s and States and that we have the potential to make some noise in both tournaments.”
Thank You: “I want to thank my coaches, both club and high school, for helping me develop into the player I am today and helping me to have the opportunity to play lacrosse beyond the high school level.
“I want to thank my parents and the rest of my family for being as supportive as they could and they were just as happy as I was when I committed. Finally, I want to thank my teammates, I can consider each of them a brother to me and without them I would have never fallen in love with lacrosse and would never have had this opportunity.”
Other schools considered: West Conn, Post University, Nazareth College
