What will you major in/study? Accounting/Business Administration
Why did you choose LIU Post? “I decided on LIU Post because they have a strong business program that I will attend. The winning tradition of the lacrosse program is exactly what I wanted to become part of and I believe I will contribute to future runs at the National Championship. Having coaches like Coach (John) Jez and Coach (Frank) V was also a big factor in my decision.”
Outlook for your High School team next season? “Last year we had a good season that ended with a playoff loss to West Islip. With 8 returning starters we plan to make a playoff run and have another good year.”
Thank You: “There were a lot of good coaches along the way. I would like to thank my first PAL coach Wayne Rhatigan because I wouldn’t be where I am today without him. At the high school level- Coach Murphy, Coach O’Connell, Coach Castagna, Coach Brink and Jim Konen also helped me improve my game. My father coached me through middle school club and we enjoyed many hours together on the lacrosse field.”
