Why did you choose Rutgers? “I chose Rutgers for the many academic opportunities they offer for me to be successful. The campus is beautiful, the coaches are great and the lacrosse program is exactly what I was looking for.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “Although we have lost some key players, I feel this year’s team will be very strong. Most of us have been playing together since the third grade and we have a lot of heart and team spirit. We are hard workers and will not be satisfied unless we win.”

I would especially like to thank my mom and dad for always supporting me in everything I do.”
