What I Will Major In: Business/Marketing Management

Why Did I Choose The School?: “I chose the school because it had a welcoming atmosphere, and everyone who I met was very kind and helpful. Coach (John) Tillman was also a really great guy and I really look forward to playing for him when I get there.”

High School Team Outlook for this year:
“We are currently ranked 8th in the Washington Pre-Season Lacrosse Standings, and I believe we can pull off many upsets this year. Although we are a young team, we have plenty of guys who are willing to work hard and lead our team to victory each game.”

Other Comments: My family and I would like to thank Max and Xander Ritz, Scott Hochstadt, Ira Hochstadt, Lewis Ratcliff, and Jason Bloom, for they all have made me want to become not only a better player, but a better person as well. Without them, I don’t think I would have the opportunities that have been given to me today.
