What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose Georgetown? “I first visited Georgetown in the spring and was able to spend the weekend at Georgetown this fall. Once I did the fall visit and got a good feel for the school and players, I knew it was the right place for me. Georgetown is a great academic school and has a great lacrosse program. I really liked the campus and location. I also liked Coach Ricky (Fried) and his energy. I know that I will learn a lot from him.”
Outlook for your HS team next season? “Our team has improved each of the past two years. We had some very big wins last year and hope to repeat that this year and go deeper into the IAAM playoffs.
Additional Comments: “I would like to thank Chris Robinson, my M&D club coach, for helping me to improve as a lacrosse player. I also would like to thank my parents for supporting me throughout my whole life, especially during this process, and for coming to watch every one of my high school games and club tournaments.”
