Why did you choose school? “I chose Maryland because Coach (John) Tillman and his staff represent everything that a successful lacrosse program has and everything that is important to me: hard, work, discipline, team first and giving back. I feel like they truly care about developing me as a player and as a person. I felt at home when I visited and felt like I was part of the team. The campus is awesome and it’s only two hours away so my family can continue to be part of my lacrosse life. The academics at Maryland are a good fit for me and I wanted the opportunity to play for a National Championship.”
