Thank You: “I would like to thank my Yellow Jacket coaches and teammates for making me a better lacrosse player and person. My teammates are my best friends on and off the field. I wouldn’t be half the player and person I am today without them. I would like to thank my Dad for introducing the game of lacrosse to me, probably the best thing that has ever happened to me. And of course I would like to thank my Mom, who has loved me and supported me through everything. I want to give a special shout out of thanks to my two younger sisters, Riley and Mackenzie and James, my younger brother. They support me on and off the field and try to come to as much of my games as possible. There’s nothing better then setting a good example and sharing a passion through lacrosse with my younger siblings.”
