What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose the school? “Overall, HPU is where I will be most happy. During my visit, it was very easy to picture myself attending the University. The combination of great academics, lacrosse, and the amazing campus makes it the perfect fit. Once I finished the tour and met the coaching staff, I knew it was the place I wanted to call ‘home.'”
HS team’s outlook for 2017 season? “I could not ask for a better group of guys to play with this season. We have been working hard in the off-season and coming together well as a team. There is no doubt we have the team chemistry needed, but now we have to show what we can do.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents, all of my coaches, and everyone who helped me with the recruiting process. I especially want to thank my Dukes LC coaches Ebe Helm and Jason Christmas and my Hun lacrosse coach MV Whitlow.”
