Why did you choose Holy Cross? “I chose Holy Cross because it gives me the opportunity to continue playing lacrosse at the highest level while receiving a fantastic education. The campus is beautiful, and I am excited to experience everything the north has to offer. Coach (Jim) Morrissey and Coach (Justin) Hager are great, and I can’t wait to see where they take the program in terms of the Patriot League and even competing for a National Championship.”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “Our High School team lost only 4 seniors after winning our second consecutive State Championship, so I expect us to be strong contenders again this year.”
Thank You: “I’d like to thank my High School coach Dick Sipperly and my club coaches Tim Price, Bobby Thompson, and Mike Desmond for helping me throughout the recruiting process.
“I would also like to thank my friends and teammates for helping me achieve where I am today.
