What will you major in/study? “I plan to major in cyber operations or attend flight school to become a helicopter pilot. I’m still up in the air on that one, though.”
Why did you choose the school? “I chose the Naval Academy because it was more then school or just your average college campus. It felt like a home away from home; a place I’ll be able to succeed at and better myself for the real world and surround myself with people with my same mindset.”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “Coming out of my freshman year we made it to the state semis and lost in double overtime. We lost 11 seniors that year, seven of which continued to play in colleges (Notre Dame, Canisius, Catawba, Campbell, San Diego State and several others). Going in to my sophomore year we had two remaining starters on the team, however, against the odds we were able to come out with a winning season. Looking forward into the season we have a lot of talent and have developed into a more mature and experienced team and we look forward to the challenges that face us.”
Thank You: “I’d Like to thank my parents; I would be no where with out them. Especially my father, Peter Roskovich, who was a former two time all American at Salisbury University and who gave me the desire to play the game I’ve grown to love.”
