I was 8 or 9 when I first picked up a lacrosse stick. I had good coaches early, and opportunities to play competitive lacrosse, and before long I became committed to mastering the sport. Throughout my youth and club lacrosse experiences, I have worked to improve my game, and to develop a thorough understanding of the game. I plan to sustain this effort throughout my high school career, while achieving excellence in the classroom. In this way, I hope to create opportunities for me to obtain a great education while playing lacrosse at the highest level.
