What will you major in/study? Theatre Arts or Music

Why did you choose Furman? “I chose the school because I felt very comfortable as soon as I stepped on campus. I wanted to be a part of a new lacrosse program, get a great education and the coaching staff is phenomenal.”

What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “This HS season was unreal. Being pre-ranked #1 in the Country and playing/practicing against HS players that are playing D1 lacrosse has really helped me as a player, and it inspired me to work very hard to get bigger, stronger, and faster during the season and off-season.

“Coach Shriver is a great coach. He makes us work very hard, but the hard work definitely pays off. I believe next season will be a great season. We have many players coming back, and I think we will be very strong and hard to beat.”

Additional Comments: “I would like to thank Coach Shriver, Coach LeQuang and Coach Wilson from Zingos, and all of the Furman coaching staff for helping me get to where I am today. I wouldn’t be where I am today If it wasn’t for these great coaches.

“Last but not least I would like to thank my Mom, Dad, Sisters (Samantha and Angie), and the rest of my family for believing in me and being there for me whenever I need them. I don’t know what I would do without my family by my side.”

Other schools considered: Robert Morris, Mercer, UNC, Ohio State
