What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose the school? “When I began the recruiting process I knew I wanted to go to school in California. I wanted to help the sport grow in a nontraditional lacrosse area and go back to my home state. Once I visited San Diego State I fell in love. The campus is beautiful, the academic standards are high, and I love the weather! The girls on the team were so welcoming and friendly and I really connected with Coach (Kylee) White and Coach (Brandi) Jones. I know the program is going to continue to grow and I want to be a part of that process. I am so excited to be at SDSU next fall!”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “Milton had an incredible season this year! We beat Vero Beach and became No. 1 in the South. I was very proud of my team when we held McDonough to only 3 goals (11-8 loss). We worked together as a team and it was so amazing playing with so many future D1 players. I know next year we are going to come back just as strong and continue to make a statement about southern lacrosse. I am very excited for next season and all the great things we will accomplish.”
Thank You: “I want to thank Coach Godby and Coach Snyder for all their support and help with the recruiting process. I also want to thank my parents for always believing in me and encouraging me to pick the right school for me. Lastly, I want to thank Coach White and Coach Jones for the amazing opportunity to live my dream and play lacrosse for the Aztecs in sunny San Diego!”
