Why did you choose Canisius? “I chose Canisius because it gave me the opportunity to play lacrosse at a very high level and still receive an excellent college education.
“Since I started playing lacrosse back in the 7th grade, I’ve dreamed about playing and living on the East Coast and Canisius allowed me to fulfill that dream.
“When I first visited the campus I felt very welcomed by Coach (Randy) Mearns, the Head Lacrosse Coach, and I loved the passion he had for lacrosse and the goal he had for his team; which was winning a National Championship.
“While at Canisius I will also be participating in the Army ROTC program, which was a big factor in my decision to attend Canisius.”
HS team’s outlook for 2017 season? “The 2017 season looks promising for us so far, we have a young group of really dedicated and skilled guys to replace the vast amount of Seniors we graduated last year. We will be looking for some of our younger guys to step into starting roles and we will be led by our veteran Juniors and Seniors who contributed a lot in the past few years on the varsity level.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents for always supporting me in everything I have done and helping me along every step of the way.
“I would also like to thank my Coach, Bill Cafferata, for helping me throughout the entire recruiting process and continuing to support and progress me in my lacrosse endeavors; he has been a great role model and lacrosse coach since my freshman year of high school.
“I would also like to thank my Coach, Cody Gould, who is a Canisius Alumni and who introduced me to Coach Mearns of Canisius. Lastly I would like to thank every member of the Loan Star Squad, especially Tiger Lord for working with me and pushing me to become a better face-off athlete.”
