Since the day I picked up my first stick in 3rd grade I have been in love with the sport of lacrosse. For the first 7 years of my career I played X and right side attack in rec, travel programs, school and wherever else I could find a game or a tournament.
My lacrosse skills developed, earning me the privilege to play a starting attack position on the Oxbridge varsity team my freshman year. That year I scored 20 plus goals and roughly the same number of assists and thought that attack would be my one and only position in the sport. At the start of my sophomore year, the team needed a strong offensive midfielder and I was asked by Coach Ross to switch to this position. I did so with trepidation as my love of lacrosse had attack since that first day I picked up a stick but midfield was where I was needed and I excelled. The team ended up having a great year only losing during the final playoffs.
By my junior year I had earned a starting position on first line midfield. Oxbridge had an extraordinary season, winning our district and making it until the final..... . Unfortunately, mid-season I succumbed to a rolled ankle and was out for t8 games but was able to return for the last 5 games.
My dad had a huge impact on my lacrosse career being my coach for rec and travel at Storm, Revolution (now Team 91). His experience stemmed from his own lacrosse experiences at McDonogh and University of Maryland and lacrosse is still his passion as it will be mine for the rest of my life. It has always been my my dream to play lacrosse in college and therefore I now I want to pursue that dream to the fullest
As I now enter my senior year I want a strong final high school year but to also set my sights on taking my talents to the next level and being the best player I can be. Lacrosse has opened me up to new friendships, influential people and exemplary coaches. Stan Ross, my high school coach, is also a main reasons I want to continue my lacrosse career as he believes in me and knows that I can make a substantial contribution to the right college team. Coach Ross has trained me for the last four years, preparing me for the next level. I am ready for college lacrosse and excited to take my skills to the next level.
