What will you major in/study? Undecided, leaning toward Biology.
Why did you choose the school? “When I began the process, my goal was to find a school with a strong combination of academics and athletics, and I believe I have found that with Dartmouth. I have loved Dartmouth since I was a little kid, but stepping on campus more recently, I knew that it was the place for me. Hanover is obviously a beautiful place, but above all, I loved the team and the sense of community. On my unofficial visit, every person I met was so welcoming and cordial. The team was clearly both fun and disciplined which is exactly what I was looking for. I just felt that my personality blended well with not only the players, but also the coaching staff. I am so excited to become a member of the Big Green!”
What is your team’s outlook for next season? “We are always looking to bring the team to a higher level. We had a strong run in the state playoff last year, and we are definitely looking to try again for a title this year. We will be moving up a division to D1 this coming spring and we have a relatively young team, so we are going to have to bring up our level of play to be able to be competitive with some of the top teams.”
Thank You: “There are so many people that have helped me throughout this process, but the one person who I could not have done it without is my goalie coach, Tillman Johnson. Tillman was an All-American and National Champion himself, but his ability to translate his skills into coaching was an invaluable resource for me. Not only did Tillman improve my skills, but he also helped me with every other aspect of recruiting. He told me that we were a team, and that he was going to see to it that my dream of playing Division 1 lacrosse came true. I certainly would not be where I am today without Tillman.
“I would also like to thank my club coach, Leslie Frank, and the entire Mass Elite organization, and also my high school coach, Kelly Jurgens, for giving me great advice along the way.
“Lastly, I would like to thank my parents and my brothers, Teddy, Dean, and Austin for supporting me throughout the process.
Other schools considered? Yale, Georgetown
