What will you major in/study? Economics
Why did you choose UConn? “When I visited Connecticut, I fell in love with the school. The campus and facilities were absolutely amazing. Also Coaches (David) Cornell and (Vince) Redko were very welcoming and made me feel that Connecticut College was the right choice for me.”
What is your team’s outlook for next season? “Next season I believe we should be pretty solid. We lost a bunch of key senior players last year, but we are predominantly a young team with a lot of talent. We are still trying to win our first playoff game, so it should be an exciting season.”
Thank You: “I would like to give a big thanks to my family. My Mom, Dad, and my twin brother Jonathan have been my biggest supporters over the years; attending all of my tournaments and showcases, no matter where the showcases were.
“Lastly, I would like to thank Coach Gordon Purdie for everything he has done for me over the past summers. He is the reason why I even considered playing college lacrosse. Most of my confidence in this game is because of his encouragement.”
Other schools considered: Richmond University, Tufts University, Boston University, Williams College
