What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose CNU? “I chose CNU because of the strong business program and great campus vibe. From the moment I arrived at CNU, everyone was very friendly and welcoming. CNU’s lacrosse program has a great coaching staff and culture plus top notch facilities to help you perform to the best of your ability. With Coach Mikey Thompson’s leadership and vision, the program is going in the right direction and I’m excited to be part of it.”
Outlook for 2017 HS season? “My individual goals for my 2017 High school season are to improve my left hand and technique for faceoffs. I also want to help my team win our fourth straight 6A VA Lacrosse State Championship.”
Thank You: “First, I’d like to thank my parents for supporting me step by step through this recruiting process. Without my parents, I wouldn’t have had as many opportunities as I did.
“Next, I’d like to thank all of my coaches from the past and present. Coach Curran, Coach Keel, Coach Solomon and Coach Daniel taught me everything I know about lacrosse. I wouldn’t be where I am today without them. Coach Maddox, Coach Marriott and Coach Curtin helped me take my game to the next level. I’d also like to thank Coach Savage for training me.
“Finally, I’d like to thank Coach (Mikey) Thompson and the coaching staff of Christopher Newport University for giving me the opportunity to play and compete for such a great program.”
Other schools considered: Ithaca, Gettysburg, York, Stevenson and VMI
