What will you major in/study? Accounting
Why did you choose St. John’s? “I was fortunate to have numerous opportunities. I selected St John’s University for the academics and quality lacrosse program. The campus is beautiful, is close to home and in NYC. Coach (Jason) Miller spent a lot of time with me and made me feel that SJU was the place for me. I am proud that I will be the third generation in my family to attend SJU.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “The team is looking stronger than ever. Offensively we have Devin Dwyer, Justin Guterding, Liam Kennedy, Rob Savage, and Patric Berkery to light it up.
Dan Marino is probably the best goalie you could want between the pipes. On defense, Eugene Berkery, Scott D’Antonio, Eddie Blatz, and myself we will be fast and aggressive. The coaches at Garden City are amazing and I’m looking forward to the team having a great season.”
Additional comments: “I’d like to thank Coach Finnell and Coach Flatley for everything that they have done for me. I’d also like to thank my parents for their support.”
