Why did you choose Robert Morris? “I chose Robert Morris because I loved the size of the school and the feel I got for it when I visited. Robert Morris has a great academic reputation after winning the team GPA award last year in the NEC, and that really caught my attention when it came to making my decision.
“I really like the coaching staff at Robert Morris and also got along with the players very well when I went on my visit. The up-tempo, fast break style of play that RMU plays with fits my style of play perfectly.”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “Last year we had a very talented team with many players that went on to play in college. We had a great season with a lot of valuable wins. We were able to make a run in the Division 1 State tournament, where we came up short in the Regional finals. I am very thankful that I was able to start on last year’s team, because every day I became a better player.
“I formed many strong relationships with last year’s Seniors and they will always be some of my best friends. With a whole new coaching staff coming in this year I am very excited for the opportunity at hand. We have a lot of returning talent on our team this year, and I’m excited to leave it on the field every day and do what I can for my team so that we can make a run for the State title.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents, and my three sisters who have done nothing but shown me positive support with everything I’ve done. Also I’d like to thank all of my coaches that I’ve had through both school and summer lacrosse, without them I would not be the player I am today.”
Other schools considered: Quinnipiac, Army, Ohio State, Bucknell, Mercyhurst
