What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose CSU? “I chose Cleveland State because I was very impressed with the campus, the opportunities for business internships in the city of Cleveland, as well as the great lacrosse staff. I love that I am a part of growing the game in the state of Ohio and I am honored to be a part of creating new traditions in a brand new program.”

Thank You: “First I would like to thank my parents for all the time and money they have spent driving me to Columbus for my travel team and for tournaments, prospect camps, and showcases. I realize the sacrifices my whole family (2 siblings and 6 step siblings) made for me to get the chance to play lacrosse in college.
“I would like to thank Coach McGinnis, from Moeller for encouraging me, helping me narrow my college search and put my thoughts into perspective, and for helping me become a better player.
“I would like to thank my Resolute coaches, Coach Schroder and Coach Slane for pushing me to get better and for giving me the chance to play with and against some of the best players in the country. I would like to thank Coach Lee from Resolute for helping me navigate showcases and prospect camps, college coach emails and phones, and for encouraging me through the entire recruiting process.
“Finally, I would like to thank my youth lacrosse coaches, Sean Garry, Garnet Wahlund, Paul Miller, and Randy Sagraves, for convincing me to give lacrosse a try, for teaching me the fundamentals, for always believing in me, and most of all for teaching me the love of the game.”
