Why did you choose Holy Cross? "Holy Cross has a great program with a great staff and team culture. The school itself is very prominent academically and I can’t wait to become part of the Holy Cross community!"
Is there anything else you would like to share? "I want to start out by thanking my parents, Karianne and Tom, for being the two most supportive people in my life. Without you, I would not be in the position that I am today. I would also like to thank my little brother, Eli, for being my best friend and keeping me grounded through this process. Secondly, to Coach Thompson, Coach McDougall, Coach Runnette, Coach Galey, and Coach Stu at Shady Side, thank you for believing in me and pushing me to the limits. I consider myself extremely lucky that I have been able to play under you as you guys are the best coaching staff anyone could ever ask for. You have all taught me very valuable lessons in life that I will cherish forever. I cannot thank you enough for that. Coach Christmas and Coach Ebe and the rest of my Duke’s family, you guys have shown me a whole new level of lacrosse and I cannot wait to watch my brothers grow and play. Thank you for welcoming in a Pittsburgh native into your family and I can now say that I have a home in Philly. Lastly to Coach Burke, Coach Lynch, Coach Farley and the rest of the the Holy Cross staff, thank you for this opportunity and making my dream come true. "
What other colleges did you consider? "Vassar College, St. Joe’s & the University of Hartford"
