I was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, where there was no real lacrosse presence. After my dad got out of the Army, my family moved to Maryland. This was my first exposure to lacrosse. This exposure was true love at first sight. I started playing lacrosse in 3rd grade. Since then, the highlights of my career have been making my high school team as sophomore, to then leading my team to multiple comeback victories. Throughout my career, especially this season, I have faced rigorous obstacles. One in particular, I started out being the 4th string faceoff guy in my first varsity game. After that game, I moved up the ranks and became my team's starter in the MIAA-A Conference quarterfinal and semifinal games. Through these obstacles, I have learned the value of commitment and the importance of focus.
Aside from the competitiveness in lacrosse, I enjoy the challenges in the classroom. Right now, I am enrolled in all honors and AP classes. The pace of my lacrosse and academics schedule has really taught me the values of time management and organization in order to achieve the high goals and standards I have set for myself. My goal is to be, not only the best lacrosse player I can be, but the best person I can be as well.
