What will you major in/study? “I am going to attend the School of Management at Binghamton. I will study finance or marketing.”
Why did you choose the school? “I chose Binghamton for many reasons. First off, it is a great school and has a nationally ranked Business school. Head Coach Nelson and Assistant Coaches Francis and Settembrino made me feel extremely welcome, and they have a great lacrosse program. Their schedule is very good and I can’t wait to contribute.”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? We should be a TOC competitor this year. We have eight returning starters and have the talent to surprise a lot of people this year. With some hard work in the offseason and preseason, we can accomplish our goal of being TOC champs.”
Thank You: “I want to thank my parents first and foremost: for all of the time and money they invested in me playing the sport of lacrosse whether it was traveling all over for tournaments or having to buy me equipment, and especially the amount of support I received from them throughout this entire process. I also want to thank my High school Coach, Tom Mott, and my Club Coach, Kerry Weigner. They helped me develop my skills to become the player I am today. Also a very special thanks to Coach Gene Peluso who worked with Team Turnpike and really helped me with the recruiting process.”
Other schools considered? St. Joe’s, Wagner, Lafayette
