What will you major in/study? Undecided

Why did you choose UNC? “It’s been one of my dream schools since I started playing the game at 6; great coaches at Carolina and they have been known to win championships. Plus UNC has awesome facilities. As soon as I visited the campus, I knew I wanted to be there. I like playing lacrosse all year, so I need warmer weather.”

What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “Very good. We are currently ranked 5th in Suffolk County, Division 1. We are a young team and we will be even better in the next couple of years. I think coach Searing is excited.”

Additional comments: “I want to thank the following people who have been a huge part of my life while growing up: LI Outlaws coach, Pat Brennan, my entire Outlaw team who is now like family, George Sutherland, Bill and Annmarie Golden, Larry Ceraci, my godparents, John Simpson and Ashlee Hovsepian, my brothers Jeff and Matt, my sister Lindsay and of course, my mom.”
