Why did you choose Washington and Lee University (W&L), Men's D3? "I chose Washington and Lee University because of the exceptional academic opportunity that it represented and the broad range of majors and programs that are available. W&L has one of the most storied lacrosse programs and traditions in college lacrosse and I very much enjoyed communicating and visiting with Coach McCabe. The campus and Lexington, VA are a perfect size and fit for me. Being part of the academic and athletic opportunities at Washington and Lee was an obvious choice."
Is there anything else you would like to share? "There are so many people to thank who have helped teach me this game over the past 12 years since I first picked up a lacrosse stick: All of the coaches at West Chester Youth Lacrosse, PA Roughriders Coaches Chris Onderdonk and Travis Lamb who have been with me since the beginning, and Coaches John McEvoy and Paul O'Grady from Malvern Prep who have been instrumental in making me the player I am today. I would also like to thank my teammates and most importantly my family for their endless support."
What other colleges did you consider? "Lafayette, Army, Swarthmore, Williams, UMBC, Bryant, and Monmouth."
