Why did you choose Johns Hopkins? “I chose JHU for many reasons. It’s an amazing academic university as well as a phenomenal lacrosse program. I grew up on Charles Street, a mile away from JHU before I moved to Philadelphia last year so I’m very familiar with and love the location. My uncle (Greg Lily) was an All-American defensemen at Hopkins and my aunt (Kristie Lily) is in the (school’s) Hall of Fame, so there’s a good amount of legacy from my family there. I have a great deal of respect for coach (Dave) Pietramala and I look forward to the opportunity to play for a national championship.”

Your HS team’s outlook for 2014:
“Our outlook for the season is very positive. We were very young this year, but now we have a lot of experience as a young team and hope to compete for the Inter-Ac title.”

Other comments: “I’d like to thank coach (John) Nostrant and the entire coaching staff at Haverford School for helping me tremendously; all my teammates at Haverford, especially Kip Taviano; Ryan McClernan, my first coach and director of the Crabs Lacrosse Club, and all my other coaches with the Crabs that have worked so hard to teach me the game; my Mesa Fresh coaches; and last but not least, my parents who support me each and every day.”
