Additional Comments: “I would like to thank my parents for pushing me to be my best. My dad for teaching me the basics of being a lacrosse goalie, but most importantly being my mentor in every aspect of my life.
“Coach Mule’ (former head coach of the Lizards) and Coach Breres for training me and teaching me to never quit and to hustle to the very last whistle.
“Coach John Geagan for teaching me that the little things do matter in the goal and in life. Every step and every breath. Be loud and assertive, but most importantly, to stay calm in the goal. “If a ball goes in, leave it, move on to the next one. Stay relaxed and get ready for the next shot.”
“Mr. LeFranc taught me how to command my defenders and teammates effectively. Being vocal is the difference between a good goalie and a great goalie.
“Mike Chanenchuk for contacting lacrosse college coaches to watch me play over the years.”
