What will you major in/study? Education
Why did you choose Mary Washington? “Aside from the great academics and amazing campus, I chose Mary Washington because I loved the newly named head coach Drew Delaney’s system. He runs a fast pace modern style of lacrosse which I was looking for in a school.
“Along with being the fastest team in college, one of coach Delaney’s goals for his team was to be a top program in the country. I loved this competitive mind set, and I know the future for Mary Washington lacrosse is extremely bright.”
Outlook for 2017 HS season? “Last season our team came very close to a state championship. This year with very good players and coaches returning, we are planning on making a run deep into the playoffs in hope of winning the state tittle.”
Thank You: “I would first like to thank my family for everything they have done for me and the loving support over the years. I would also like to thank all the coaches that I’ve had growing up.
“Lastly, I would like to thank the Woodson lacrosse program and Top caliber lacrosse program, for making me the player and person I am today.”
