What will you major in/study? Economics
Why did you choose Middlebury? “I chose Middlebury for its exceptional academics. I wanted a school where I could challenge myself academically and play lacrosse at a high level, and Middlebury offered both of those opportunities so it made the decision easier. I was very familiar with Middlebury from a young age, due to my Dad being a Middlebury alum. However I felt that Middlebury was the perfect fit for for me academically, socially and athletically.”
Thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/outlook for next season? “Ending my career at Ossining High School as a four year starter this past season was a great experience. Playing my last seasons with my best friends since 3rd grade and winning our first League Championship in the past 25 years was something that we were all very proud of. Going Into my PG Year at The Hill School is something that I am really looking forward to. I look forward to coming in and competing with some of the best Philly and Mid- Atlantic Schools around.”
Other comments: “I would like to thank my Parents for all their support, I would like to thank my coaches Mark Hallinan (Ossining High School), Ken Miller (LI Sting) and Dave Mullen (Hill). I would also like to thank all of my friends for their support and believing in me (you know who you are).”
Other schools considered: Amherst, Bates, Skidmore, Kenyon, Dartmouth, Providence, Sacred Heart
