Why did you choose Hamilton College? “When I visited Hamilton this past winter on Junior Day, it immediately became one of my top choices. The academic opportunities there were more than I could ever ask for, and I fit in right away with the student-athletes that I met.
Also, to be a part of Hamilton’s lacrosse program that is on the rise, with double-digit wins the past two seasons, and now entering the NESCAC, was something that I couldn’t turn down.
I got to know Coach (Scott) Barnard really well over the past year or so, and I wanted the opportunity to learn and grow as a lacrosse player under him.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for the season? “I have really high expectations for our team this year. Many are underestimating us because of the class that just graduated, but I believe that the core group that this team has can go a really long way.
We have had a bunch of guys step-up throughout the preseason, and I think that we’re poised for a great season and another run at a sectional championship. Everyone on the team has one goal in mind, and we’ve been working hard the past several months to make that goal happen.”
