What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose this school? “The University of Maryland has everything I want in a school. I wanted a big school with a good Business program. My campus visit was awesome and I loved the facilities. I like that I will only be 2 1/2 hours from home. The athletic facilities are first class and a new field house is being built. I had the opportunity to play in Capital One Stadium last spring and could see myself there. Becoming a member of the Terps lacrosse tradition is a huge honor! Watching Maryland in the Final Four for the past several years has showed me this new level of play that I would love to be a part of.”
Outlook for 2017 High School 2017 Season: “I am very excited to finally have the opportunity to play at Bishop Shanahan as an incoming freshman. I have been watching my brothers, Eli and Sam, play the past four years and win Ches-Mont League titles and go to the state playoffs. I look forward to playing for Coach Heisman, Coach Meyers and Coach Poake. It will be awesome to finally play with my brother Sam this year. We should be very competitive and should make some noise again in the Ches-Mont and state playoffs.”
People to thank: “I would first like to thank God for giving me everything. I would like to thank my sister, Hannah, and my brothers, Jacob, Eli and Sam, for always supporting me and pushing me to make me better; also, most importantly my parents in helping me make my dream a reality. I would like to thank my LYA Coaches: Coach Hamilton, Coach Rafferty, and Coach Lang. I would also like to thank my Freedom coaches: Coach Mac, Coach Hammond, Coach Zebrowski, and Coach Davis. I would also like to say a special thank you to Coach Miller for coaching me all throughout my youth and also for helping me get through this recruiting process.”
