What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose the school? “I chose JHU because of the great academic opportunities and the ability to compete for a national championship. Another huge factor was because of the rich lacrosse tradition JHU offers and all of the great past players and teams to come out of Hopkins. The most important factor in my decision was the coaching staff. Coach (Dave) Pietramala and his staff made it clear to me from the moment I met them that they embodied the principles that are important to me. I believe they will help me develop as a lacrosse player, student and young man.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “Chaminade is always a perennial powerhouse and this year’s team should be very strong.”
Other comments: “I would not be the athlete, student and young man I am today without many people who have helped me along the way. Most importantly, I have a very strong faith and believe nothing is possible without God’s blessing and help. My Mom, Dad and three younger brothers have supported me to reach all of my dreams and have made huge sacrifices for me to be the best that I can be. My parents have instilled values in me that will guide me forever. My dad has been a coach, mentor and role model. He has provided me with every opportunity and resource to improve my game.
“I would also like to thank all of my coaches at 91 lacrosse, Coach Wichelens, Coach Rooney, Coach Martin and, most importantly, Coach Sal Locascio. Coach Locascio has been an unbelievable mentor, coach and role model. He has taught me how to play lacrosse, be a leader and how to compete until the final whistle. I feel he and I will share a special bond for years to come. I would also like to thank Coach Sean Keenan who has spent endless hours helping me improve my game and is always ready to give me sound advice.
