Why did you choose school: “I chose Syracuse because I have always wanted to go there and they have a great academic program along with a great lacrosse program.”
Looking back at 2013 and ahead to 2014: “The past lacrosse season had a rough ending and we all knew that we shouldn’t have ever overlooked a game, especially against a great team like CNS (Cicero-North Syracuse). We now take that loss as a learning lesson and plan to go out and play as hard as we can for this upcoming season.”
Thank You: “I have many people to thank, especially my family, who push me to work harder everyday of my life. Whenever I get down on myself, they always know what to say to put me in a better mood. I would also like to thank Coach Bob Elmer because he has been my coach since I was 7 and has taught me everything to know about being a good lacrosse player.”
Other school considered: UConn
