Why did you choose Wesleyan? “Wesleyan had everything I was looking for in a college. A great academic institution combined with a high level of athletics. Wesleyan puts on the field a team that can compete for the NESCAC and the National Championship every year. I spoke to several Wesleyan players and they all said the same thing: “Wesleyan has great facilities, challenging classwork and a great coach.” Coach (John) Raba has been fantastic throughout this process and I look forward to playing for him and helping Wesleyan put some trophies in the cabinet!”
Outlook for your High School team? “Westminster has lots of talent coming back from a great finish last season. We have smart and talented players at every position. We expect to win the Founders league but we know every game will be tough. We have some crazy offensive players and our defense is solid. Coaches Newman, Eckerson and Duddy will have us ready to play. I cannot wait for next season to get started.”
Other comments: “I have a lot of people who helped me get to this point. My parents who always supported me and drove me to countless practices and games. My coaches, and they have all been a big help: Deragon, McCartney Fowler, Kaminow, Levine, Ricasio, Sweet, O’Donnell, DePasquale, Newman, Eckerson, Duddy, Konen, O”Leary and Miller. All of these men helped me to be a better player and a better man. I admire these guys and am a compilation of their gifts to me.
“Lastly my brother Chris (Hank) Moser who won the State championship with me when I was a Freshman (he was a Sr. Captain). I will never forget that day. He has been there for me through the peaks and valleys of lacrosse and life. My best friend and closest confidant. Chris is the only guy who can get the ball past me at will (and I have had Siebald and Pannell shoot at me). He is a heck of a Face-off guy for Castleton College.”
Other schools considered: Lafayette, Yale, Dartmouth, Brown, Kenyon, Williams, Middlebury, Tufts
