I am a high IQ close defender, scholar athlete, who is hardworking, athletic, aggressive, relentless and coachable. I have advanced stick skills, and play with sound positioning, strong off-ball sense and am effective in the transition game. I am a multi-sport (soccer, wrestling, football, basketball) and multiple Varsity Letter (3 in lacrosse and one in varsity wrestling in 8th grade) athlete. I played travel soccer for many years and was routinely the scoring leader and captain on my team. In 2022 I was named First Team All-Big Bend. In 2021 I was named 2nd Team All District.
I am ambidextrous (natural lefty) and will play LSM and take face offs. I have played Attack and scored and assisted when asked to give my team a "lefty" shooter. I study game film and ask questions to improve my game IQ to be the smartest on the field. I lock down my opponents and routinely give up the fewest shots. I am not erratic, and I play sound fundamentals and will not leave my responsibilities. I excel in the transition game with my long and accurate passing. I have been a Captain at every level. I am always willing to help my teammates and am consistent and responsible in practice and games. I arrive early and leave late, and work extra on my game whenever I am able. I work with my coaches outside of practice and talk with them to see where I can improve. I am a positive person and make friends easily.
