What will you major in/study? Communications
Why did you choose Trinity? “From the very beginning of the recruiting process I wanted to attend a prestigious school with a very competitive lacrosse program. I also wanted to go to a school that was on the smaller side so that I could get to know my professors and have the feeling of a tight knit community.
“As soon as I stepped on campus Coach (Michael) Higgins and Coach (Brian) Praetorius really made me feel very comfortable and interested in what Trinity had to offer. I really bought into their program and the direction they have for the team.
“Trinity offers a challenging college experience for me both academically and athletically at a highly respected school. After my official visit I felt all my factors for an ideal college culminate with Trinity and I knew that Trinity was where I wanted to be.
“I also found the opportunity to compete in the prestigious NESCAC conference to be very appealing.”
Thank You: “I want to thank my mother and father for all they have sacrificed for me over the years and especially during lacrosse season. I want to thank them especially for driving me to all my games and supporting me in all my endeavors. I also want to thank Mr. And Mrs. Scinto, for all the support they
have given me which has made my High School experience possible.
“I want to thank Chris Eck of the Boston Cannons for his mentorship and guidance over the past 6 years. He taught me everything I know about facing off and without him I would not be the face off guy I am today.
“Huge thanks to Coach Whitley and Coach Fried for their coaching, support in the recruiting process and for all they have done for me over the last couple years.
“Lastly I want to thank Coach Higgins and Coach Praetorius for the great opportunity they have presented me.”
