Why did you choose Johns Hopkins? “From my first visit to Johns Hopkins, I realized the University could offer me the best of two worlds: Top-Ranked Academic and Lacrosse programs. I was really impressed by the campus, and the dedication the University has to its lacrosse program.

“On my visits to the campus, Head Coach (Dave) Pietramala and the team made me feel like I was home. We share the same level of commitment to family, community, academics and lacrosse, which made Hopkins the perfect fit.”

What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/teams outlook for next season? “This past season we did pretty well but this upcoming season we will be a very tough team to beat.”

Other comments: “I would like to thank my coaches throughout the years and a special thanks to Coach Mauro for helping me with the whole recruiting process. I would also like to thank my parents.”

Other schools considered: Maryland, UNC, Penn State
