Why did you choose school? “I Chose Delaware because it’s a mid-sized university with a distance that’s convenient for me and my family. I liked the class size, the layout of the campus and the sports facilities. I also felt comfortable with the support structure for the student-athlete.”

What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “Last year we had a young team and we struggled at times and didn’t make it into the playoffs this year we worked hard through the summer and I feel confident that we should compete to get a spot in the playoffs this year.”

Other comments:“I want to thank my Mom, Dad and the volunteers at the Suffolk County PAL for the commitment and support throughout the years. I also want to thank Coach Rich Petillo, Coach Paul De Boer, and Coach Steve Slater, my youth coaches who gave me the support and structure to be a successful lacrosse player.”
