What will you major in/study? Marketing
Why did you choose Augustana? I chose Augustana because of the small class sizes, the beautiful campus, the alumni base, the relationship I built with the coach through recruiting, and being able to play lacrosse while still getting a phenomenal education.”
HS team’s outlook for 2017 season? “We are returning all but 3 starters, so we are looking to build off of momentum we built last season. Our teams biggest goal this year is to win a Conference championship.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my True Lacrosse coaches for helping me grow into the player I am today and especially for helping me with recruiting.
“I would like to thank my mom for driving me to practice everyday and always supporting me with the sport.
“I would also like to thank my dad for always supporting me and always trying to help expand my game even though he knew very little about lacrosse in the beginning.
“Lastly, I would like to thank the fellas who have played on my line in both high school and in club because I wouldn’t have been able to make plays without them.”
