Why did you choose Jacksonville? “The combination of JU’s academic curriculum, which will allow me to follow my dream of Medicine. The coaches and their philosophy for each individual member of their team. As well as being a JU Dolphin and of course playing on the sunny beaches of Florida. I could not have asked for a better fit.”

Outlook for your High School team? “Our team had it’s up and downs last year but in the 2014 I hope to be more of a leader, constantly improving my lax IQ and overall skills. I strive to help lead our team to a Championship.”

Thank You: “I would like to give thanks to my Skywalker coaches, Amy Metzger and DeeDee Franke for all of their assistance and guidance through the past few years.

“I would like to thank my Dad for teaching me to have discipline, organization and to learn from my mistakes. I would like to thank him for his coaching skills and his constructive advice. He helped to strengthen and improve my skills in playing my favorite sport.

“Finally, I would also like to thank my Mom for the hours of sacrifice taking me to games and practices always making sure I was punctual and for encouraging me when I felt that I couldn’t go on. I also want to thank her for putting up with the drama of a teenager daughter, me.”

Other schools considered: UConn, Stanford, Virginia Tech
