What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose Army? “The main factor in my decision was that West Point is one of the best schools in the country as well as one of the top lacrosse programs in the country. The coaching staff is also unbelievable and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to play for Coach (Joe) Alberici. It is also a privilege to have to opportunity to serve my country.”
Thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/outlook for next season? “I thought we had a great season last year but unfortunately we lost to St. Anthony’s in the JV Championship game in overtime.
“Next season our goal is to win the CHSAA Championship. I’m certain that Coach Moran will have us ready for the upcoming season.”
Thank You: “First, I would like to thank my parents for all their sacrifices and support. I’d also like to thank my Chaminade coaches, Coach Pomponio, Grismer, Reeves, Kay, and Hoey. I would like to thank FLG for giving me the opportunity to get great exposure to college coaches. Finally, I’d like to thank my Manhasset coaches, Coach Cherry, Scaring, Garcia, and Barrett.”
Other schools considered: Brown, Richmond, Georgetown, Furman
