Personal Statement

Lacrosse is my passion and I work hard to learn more and develop my skills. My best attributes are my game IQ and my team defense. Playing for 10 years, you see so many different situations, and things that your team and other teams do. I have learned how to read what other teams are going to do so I am rarely caught in a situation I have never seen before. I am also very strong in team defense as I understand sliding, calling help, and all the other important elements.

I display my passion of lacrosse through refereeing and helping to coach the local youth league. I also volunteer as a board member on the US Lacrosse Illinois Chapter Board as the youngest member ever to be on a US Lacrosse Board. This is so important to me because it allows me to have an impact on the lacrosse community around me, so that even when I am no longer able to play lacrosse, I have left an impact for other kids and future generations of the lacrosse community.
