Why did you choose school: “Playing at UNC has always been a dream of mine. The school offers excellent academics and a lacrosse program that competes for a national title year in and year out. The coaching staff did a great job allowing me to picture myself in their program and made the school feel like home. I enjoyed the family atmosphere and pace of play the tar heels are known for. I knew UNC was the place for me when I left campus.”
Outlook for your high school team: “Our outlook for the upcoming season is to compete for an MIAA championship as it is every year. We are returning the entire starting offense and are graduating only two defensemen.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank coach Rick Brocato for his guidance and help throughout my recruiting process as well as being a mentor to me. I would also like to thank coach Ryan McClernan for teaching me how to play during my youth lacrosse years as well as coaches Duncan Booth and Kim Strutt. Lastly I would like to thank my parents and sister for their tremendous support throughout the years.”
