Outlook for your High School season? “I think we have a strong team this year with a lot of strong leadership.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank all the coaches I’ve had through the years that have helped enhance my game to the level it is at today. All of my youth coaches, Coach Negus and Coach Muscarella have given me the tools to be successful and I appreciate everything they’ve done up to this point. Also, I could not be in these circumstances I am today if it wasn’t for my family. My dad taught me almost everything I know and I couldn’t be more grateful. And also my mom, who has driven me all over the East coast for various lacrosse events.”
