What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose the school? “Ever since I was a little kid growing up playing lacrosse in Denver, it was easy to dream of playing for the Pios one day, and when that became a possibility to play for the hometown team under coach (Bill) Tierney it was hard to resist.”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “Last year came to a disappointing end with a last second quarterfinal loss. But the future is bright for our squad this coming season. We have a solid core of guys with good chemistry.”
Thank You: “I’d like to thank my parents and siblings for helping me make this decision; and my friends for always supporting me. I’d also like to thank all my high school coaches: Mitch Brin, Ned Bowen, and Mike Baldassare, for pushing me to be my best as a student and as an athlete; along with my coaches at Denver Elite for furthering my development. Special thanks to Josh Sims for telling me ‘run fast, shoot hard.'”
