What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose Louisville? “I chose Louisville because the school is amazing and beautiful. The setting, the class options and the great lacrosse program. I like Coach (Kellie) Young and Coach (Victoria) Latino’s philosophy and style of coaching. I also believe playing in the ACC you need a certain competitive edge and I think Coach Young expects that. I truly believe Louisville will contend for a National Championship in the near future and I look forward to playing my part in it!”
HS team’s outlook for 2016 season? “We should be pretty good. We are returning a few starters and will have some good younger players moving up. We are always in a tough conference, but I believe that in the end it makes us a better and stronger team.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my youth coaches John Considine and Tim Sheehan who taught me the game and gave me a love for lacrosse at an early age.
“I would also really like to thank my Icon club coaches Pat McCabe and Jim Williams who helped me with my skills and for being hard but fair. They continue to push me to my greatest potential. They have also supported me and helped me succeed throughout my entire recruiting process.
“Finally, to my mom and dad who have always fully supported me in everything I have chosen to do.”
Other schools considered: Duke, Penn, Princeton, Oregon
