I fell in love with the game of lacrosse in second grade at my first Division I game that went into overtime. The game's fast pace, physicality, the complexity of plays, and the player's commitment to each other on the field are a few of the reasons this game is special to me.
I am a very hard worker on and off the field, ready to grind and always deliver my best
In school, I continuously challenge myself to the most rigorous courses my school has to offer. As a freshman, I was a recipient of the Open to Growth award. This award is given to a single student from each grade which shows the highest aptitude to intellectual growth and challenging himself. My school curriculum consists of only honors and AP courses and I maintain a 4.33 GPA. My aspirations are to continue my education at the university that can intellectually challenge me at the highest level.
I am very lucky to play under phenomenal field and box coaches; Billy McKinney (Denver University), Jamie Munro (Brown University, former head coach at Denver University), Pat Harbeson(Redwoods LC, University of Virginia), and Ben Prepchuk (Radford, Colorado Mammoth (NLL). I am a strong dodging midfielder that is not afraid of physical contact and ready to play on both sides of the field. I look for every opportunity to score, but I love to create opportunities for my teammates and value assists as much as personal goals. Besides field lacrosse, I have a lot of experience with box lacrosse and played multiple tournaments in the United States and Canada. I have been on the USBOXLA National Team twice and came up as a runner-up in the Trevor Wingrove tournament in Coquitlam, as well as a runner-up in the Junior NLL Tournament as part of the Junior San Diego Seals Team. My box lacrosse experience has taught me quick stick skills, not to be afraid of contact as well as many defense skills.
My aspirations are to play at a university that would constantly challenge me athletically as well as academically and to be a great teammate.
