Why did you choose Temple? “I really like the campus, and the fact that they have strong Allied Health Programs, was a huge motivator in choosing Temple. The team dynamic is so similar to what I’m used to and the coaching staff is very positive and encouraging. It just seemed to be a great fit for me and I’m really excited to go there.”
HS team’s team’s 2018 outlook/goals? “We lost a lot of great seniors last year, but should still be a threat in the Central League. The current seniors have been playing together on school and club teams for many years, so we really know how to play well together. The underclassmen are motivated and athletic, so they will make some positive contributions too. Our coaching staff is positive, flexible, and knowledgeable. I’m excited for the spring season and think we will go far in the postseason.”
Thank You: “I want to thank my coaches in all the sports I’ve played. I’d especially like to thank my Brandywine Majors coaches Karen Borbee, Betsy Glassford & Morgan Glassford and my high school lacrosse coaches Pigeon Graham & Megan Fizzano. Their positive and encouraging coaching helped me develop into the player I am today. Their honest feedback of my strengths and weaknesses made me work harder, even when I didn’t want to.
“I’d also like to thank my mom, dad, and brothers for supporting me and pushing me to be my very best. Showing me that commitment, hard work, and integrity are valuable in all that you do, helped me achieve in school and in sports.
“I definitely need to thank my teammates, too. They made playing lacrosse (and all sports) so much fun, and they made me a better player.”
