Club Affiliation: FLG

What will you major in/study? Business Administration
Why did you choose Manhattan? “I chose Manhattan because they have a strong academic program coupled with a great lacrosse program. They also offer great internship opportunities and a strong Alumni network.”
HS team’s outlook for 2016 season? “We compete in the toughest division in Nassau County (Section 8, Conference A). We will be competitive this season. We have some key returning players and the addition of some quality underclassmen. I look forward to the start of our season and the opportunity to help my team put wins on the board. We have a good shot at the playoffs and we’ll battle until we’re on top or eliminated.”
Thank You: “I’d like to thank my PAL coaches who introduced me to the game of lacrosse. I’d like to thank my travel coaches who’ve helped me grow as a player over a number of summer seasons. I’d like to thank the many trainers who’ve worked with me and helped me improve my game. I’d like to thank my high school coaches, especially Chris Rogler – Plainview JFK Varsity Head Coach. Coach Rogler has provided me with everything I could ask for from a coach. He’s helped me become the leader on the field I am today.
“I’d like to thank my parents for providing me with everything needed to be able to play the sport of lacrosse. The equipment, the travel club fees, the long rides to and from games, tournaments, and prospect camps from as far north as Vermont and as far south as Florida. I’d like to thank my parents for being there to watch me compete (win or lose) and always providing me with advice which has helped me on and off the field.”
Other schools considered: Ithaca, Ohio Wesleyan, Franklin and Marshall, Scranton, Canisius
