Why did you choose Mercer? “I chose Mercer because as I got to know the coaches I gained great respect for each of them and the direction they are taking the program in. Also, it allows my family to enjoy my college lacrosse years by being so close to home. Academically, Mercer offers me the chance to learn and grow in whichever field I wish to pursue; medicine or law.”
What is your outlook for next season? “We are a young squad with a challenging schedule. There is a lot of potential that needs to be tapped into. Our goal is to make the playoffs as we have done since the program has started and succeed.”
Thank You: “I’d first like the thank Coach Chaffin for putting a d-pole in my hands in 7th grade. Also, Coach Price and Coach Klinker for teaching me the game and helping fall in love with it and introducing me to Liam Banks and the LB3 family. Coach Banks, Coach Zulberti, Coach Silcott and Coach Solomon for giving me knowledge of the game and opportunities to perfect and perform the skills they have taught me. Above all, their integrity and character were examples that shaped who I am today.
“Also, a special thanks goes to my parents and family for always believing in me and having my back in every decision I have made.”
