Why did you choose Towson? “I chose Towson University because of it’s Lacrosse tradition, Coaching staff and the fact that the team is capable of competing for a National Title every year.

From the moment I walked on the campus with the Coaching staff I knew that Towson is where I wanted to play college lacrosse.”

Thank You: “First, I would like to thank my parents who have traveled with me for the past 4 years all over the country and always putting my busy schedule before theirs.

“I want to thank Greg Gurenlian of the Faceoff Academy for all he has done for me through the years. I would also like to thank all of my coaches, Matt Messina who has been not only a coach but a role model for me. Coach Luce and Coach Meehan from my Varsity team who had the confidence in me to have me play as a freshman/Sophomore and continue to push me every step of the way.”
