What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose Canisius? “Canisius is close to home, they have a great business and science program. They have an outstanding reputation in both academics and athletics and I believe I can help them go far in their lacrosse program. The coaching staff is an enjoyable group of people, they just know how to help the kids enjoy the sport.”
Outlook for 2017 HS season? “We have a very young team coming up, but many teams in our division lost a lot of kids after last years season so we will have a chance to do well as long as we have no injuries.”
Thank You: “I’d like to thank my coaches but one in general would be Coach Luthart, he really helped me out by getting me in the weight room early and developed me in to the player I am today. He taught me that hard work really does pay off.
“I’d also like to thank my family. My dad was always the toughest one on me, but you always need that grudge on your shoulder to better you in the long run and I can’t thank him enough for that. My mom was the softer one and even if I thought I played terrible she was always able to lift my spirits and prepare my attitude toward the next opponent. Thank you again.”
Other schools considered: Pace, Marist, Nazarath, Brockport
