Why did you choose UNC? “I chose North Carolina because of the great academics and athletics. I love how Coach (Joe) Breschi and his staff run the program highlighting the importance of ‘Family, Academics, Lacrosse.’ During my visit to Chapel Hill I knew that this was the school that I wanted to attend and that it was the right fit for me. I wanted to attend a college that would be battling for a National Championship every year, and I feel that North Carolina – with the recruits that they are attracting and committing – that we will have an opportunity every year. I am an extremely competitive student athlete and I look forward to competing against the best! I feel that we have three very strong captains for the upcoming season that will lead us to be competing at Harvard or Gillette stadium at the end of the year.”
Thank You: “I’d like to thank my coaches at Laxachusetts, Dave Evans, Sean Morris, Dan Chouinard, Mike Connelly, and John Galvin. As well as my High School Coach, Wayne Puglisi, for helping me along with the college recruiting process and dedicating many hours to help me grow on the field and off. I’d also like to thank my parents for dedicating so many hours every week to driving me to practices and tournaments.”
