What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose Lynchburg? “I chose Lynchburg College because along with the great business program, Lynchburg is a small school atmosphere with big school spirit. Lynchburg lacrosse is a program that is traditionally dominant and with a coach like Steve Koudelka, I am sure that I will have one of the best college lacrosse experiences possible.”
Thoughts on past HS season and outlook for next year? “Last season was my final year at Guilford High School. With the team being packed with seniors, we had a great season making it to the State Quarter Finals.
“Being a PG and with a whole new team, my outlook on this upcoming season is that the sky is the limit. We are playing teams such as Boys Latin, Calvert Hall, Navy Prep, along with the all the teams in the Founders League. Every player on my team is working hard to prepare for these big games on the practice field and in the weight room and I believe that every game is more then winnable.”
Additional Comments: “I would like to thank my Mother and Father along with my brother’s Joe and John for supporting me throughout the years. I would also like to thank my friends for always helping me out.
“Finally, I would like to thank Coach Koudelka, Coach Bell, Coach White, and my college advisor Mr.Mead for helping me make my college decision.”
