Why did you choose Cal-Berkeley? “Cal Berkeley presents me with all the opportunities I’m looking for in the way of education, experience, and, of course, lacrosse. I really love the Bay Area and the type of community that Cal is part of is both unique and inviting. I’m extremely excited about the academic rigor that Cal offers.”
Outlook for your High School team? “We go into every year looking to work hard and become the best players we can be. Every day at practice we commit to our fitness level and how smart we work on the field, which translates clearly into how we play games. Our team is prepared to give everything every game and see where the hard work takes us. All we look forward to is playing a great game that day and hopefully our last game will be the State Championship.”
Thank You: “It goes without saying that I owe all of my success to my family and coaches. My parents were always routing for me and provided me with countless opportunities to achieve my dreams. My High School coach, Sean Harmon, and my club coach, Sam Bartron, both taught me everything I know about lacrosse and being an athlete. They built my confidence as a player and provided me with the necessary skills to become a good lacrosse player. I can’t thank my parents and coaches enough for giving me the chance to reach my goal.”
