Why did you choose Rockhurst? “I wanted to be a part of a new program where I knew I could contribute right away from my freshmen year. I knew I wanted to play Division 2 lacrosse in general. I loved all of the coaches and the direction the program was heading and it was just the best fit for me.”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “Winning the State Championship was an amazing feeling and we had a really great team with even better coaches. We are returning a lot of players from our State Championship team, but also bringing in some young players who I think could really contribute to CBC lacrosse.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank the CBC lacrosse program for introducing me to this great sport my freshmen year, and making me into the player I am today. I would also like to thank mo22 lacrosse club for helping me grow as a player and especially my parents who have been supportive of me throughout this whole process.”
