What will you major in/study? Pre-law
Why did you choose Harvard? “It was a tough choice because I had offers from Harvard, Notre Dame and U-Penn. I chose Harvard because it combines a high level lacrosse and academics, great team chemistry, a highly respected coach and a great location.”
What is the outlook of your High School team this season? “We are really looking forward to the upcoming season. Although our team graduated a few key seniors last year, we have a solid core of returning, athletic younger players. Last year was tough because I was injured and we did not make it to the State tournament after making it the previous three seasons. This year, everyone is extra motivated to work hard and hopefully return to States and be successful there.”
Additional comments: “I’m very appreciative of those that have supported me along the way and I would like to thank my high school coach, my teammates and my trainer who have pushed me to attain my goals.”
