Lacrosse Honors: Long Island Lax Fest All-Star team, 4 year varsity athlete, 3 year varsity starter
Academic Honors: Consistent Honor Roll student, Top 3 gpa on school team, NYSPHSA Scholar athlete
What will you major in/study? Engineering
Why did you choose UMass Lowell? “I chose Umass Lowell because of their top tier academic programs, and an up and coming lacrosse program with an excellent coaching staff.”
Highlights from 2015 HS season? “I started every game and we were League champs.”
Thank You: “First I’d like to thank my mother and father, without their constant encouragement, I would have never gotten to this point.
“Secondly, I’d like to thank all of my coaches that have helped me along the way to shape the athlete I am today. Coach Grimm, Coach Brink, Coach Murphy, Coach Castagna, and of course Coach O’Connell, thanks to you all.
“I’d also like to thank the defensemen that I played with over the last two years, Mike DiRienzo and Connor Donaghy. Between the two of them, and other upperclassmen such as Anthony Horvath and Garrett Murphy, I have been taught so many lessons not only in lacrosse but also in life and I cannot thank them enough. Not having them this year will be a major drop off, but I know they will kill it at the next level.
“Lastly, I’d like to thank all of my teachers, administrators, friends, and family who if I started naming all of them I would be typing for days. Thank you again to everyone who has helped me.”
