Why did you choose Johns Hopkins? “The Hopkins lacrosse tradition is huge, and growing up in Baltimore I had a chance to witness Hopkins at its best and I want to be a part of that tradition. Hopkins is close to my home, so this way my family can come and see me play. Finally, I chose Hopkins because of the great Academic Institution it is, and I couldn’t be more excited to play for Coach (Dave) Pietramala and the Johns Hopkins Coaching Staff.”
Outlook for HS team next season? “Varsity this year at Boys’ Latin is very experienced because we have a lot of returners, we only graduated 6 seniors. With a lot of team work we will be one of the top teams in the MIAA. Our goal is to certainly win an MIAA Championship with the leaders from our senior class.
“In the Pre-Season Brine Shootout Tournament we played well, we were seeded in the number one spot going into the playoffs.”
Additional Comments: “I would like to thank Coach Ryan McClernan, Coach Andy Shilling and Coach Brian Kelly for working with me and making me the player that I am today.”
