What will you major in/study: undecided
Why did you choose school: “I chose University of Virginia because of its superior academics and high quality lacrosse program. Once I stepped foot onto UVA campus I knew that this is where I wanted to be in four years. With the coaching staff and team enthusiasm and dynamics, I immediately felt like this is the place that would best display my dedication, and enhance my skills as a lacrosse player and an individual.”
Outlook for your high school team: “Like every other kid that plays for their high school lacrosse team there goal is to win the state championship. That is my goal coming into this year’s lacrosse season. I believe that if we work as a team every day, learn something new every day, and improve every day we can make it far this year. With our strong coaching staff that will push us to our limits, I believe as a team we will accomplish our goal.”
Thank You: “I’d like to thank a lot of people who have helped me develop as a person and as an athlete. Id like to thank my parents for guiding me in the right direction and always being there for me. I’d like to thank my high school coaches Dennis Bonn, Michael Hungerford and Christian Lynch, for trusting me as an 8th grade starter on varsity. I’d like to thank my club coaches as well for getting me prepared to play at the next level: Coach Jim Mule, Brian Spallina, George Powers, Joe Desimone, Sean Haggerty, Nick Woll, and Ed Fox.”
