Why did you choose Eastern University, Men's D3? "I chose Eastern University because the school has a lot to offer from solid academics to lots of student activities and organizations. Any time I visited, I always felt at home. The high caliber of the Men's Lacrosse program and the impressive coaching staff also played a key role in my decision."
Is there anything else you would like to share? "I want to say thank you to my mom, first off, for everything she has done for me. She's always encouraged me to dream big and work hard, and I wouldn't be half the person I am if it wasn't for her. Second, I want to acknowledge and thank a handful of coaches who have been incredibly supportive and helpful over the years: my HS coaches the last 3 years, Blase Cesarone, Tyler Orff, Ryan Mitchell, and Austin Mutter; and Blak Widow's Jake Plunket and Dave Lamont. All of these coaches have challenged me to push myself to elevate my game, and I owe them all a huge debt of gratitude."
What other colleges did you consider? "Widener University & DeSales University"
