Currently undecided

Why did you choose school? “I chose Stony Brook University mainly for the coach (Jim Nagle, who recruited Monzo when he was the coach at Colgate). I like the size a lot better than a smaller school. When he (Nagle) switched to Stony Brook, I saw it as a chance to switch to a bigger school.”

What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “I’m really excited for lacrosse season. We have a strong defense and the offense is going to be good, as usual.”

Other comments: “I’d like to thank (Penn Charter) coach (Pat) McDonough. I remember him talking to me in sixth grade, trying to me to play lacrosse. I want to thank my parents for going through all the time. I’d like to thank Joe Woodruff, who got me started in 8th grade. And Dan Carr, rest in peace; he gave me confidence and told me I could be a pretty good player. Also, thanks to Shane, who has really encouraged me. Lastly, Blair Bodek…He’s a good friend and teammate and he drove me to like half the tournaments.”
