Why did you choose GWU? “I chose George Washington for the DC city atmosphere and combination of excellent academics and athletics. When I saw the school for the first time and spent a lot of time with the team, I knew it was the right choice. I felt very comfortable with the coaching staff and am excited to be playing for and learning from Coach Tracy Coyne and her staff.”
HS team’s outlook for 2016 season? “We graduated half of our starters last year, after the best season in program history, but we are ready for this season with many newcomers and returners taking larger roles on the field. We are hoping to challenge for the league title for the third year in a row and advance further into sectionals.”
Thank You: “First, I would like to thank the Arlington coaching staff. Mike Lowell, who first introduced me to the sport, Dan Schmitt and Jesse Hushion for believing in me, helping me become a better player and assisting me with the recruiting process.
“Most importantly, I want to thank my parents for driving me all over the east coast and supporting me all the time as well as my brother, Matt for showing me how to compete at the highest level and setting a good example for me.
“I also want to thank all of my Metro Magic Club Coaches for making me a better lacrosse player and guiding me through the recruiting process.
“Lastly, I want to thank Coach Tracy Coyne, Coach Kasey Mock and Coach Erin Goodman for this opportunity and for believing in me as a student-athlete.”
