What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose the school? “Sacred Heart just felt like home to me. I loved the school and I could just picture myself there. The coaches and the players made me feel welcome and at home when I visited. It’s also pretty cool that there are a few coaches and players on the team that are from Colorado or have Colorado ties.”
HS team’s outlook for 2017 season? “We lost a good amount of key seniors last year and there are some big shoes for our group of seniors to fill, but we are a young team and we are a very talented team. We have some young guys that made an impact last year and will be counted on again this year, but with the older guys and senior group we have now, I’m confident that we will be able to make another playoff push and possibly another state championship run this spring.”
Thank You: “I want to thank God for giving me this opportunity and blessing me with the ability to play lacrosse. I want to thank my parents and my brothers because without them none of this would be possible. I also want to thank my friends and teammates. Finally, I want to thank my coaches, John Grant Jr. and John Gallant, for all that they’ve done for me and helping me become a better man on and off the field.”
Other schools considered: Mount Saint Mary’s, Benedictine University, Colorado College, Colorado Mesa, Salisbury
