Why did you choose school: “Since I began playing lacrosse, Hopkins has been my dream school. It is truly an honor to have the opportunity to play for a school that has such great coaches and lacrosse tradition. I was very impressed with the campus, the academics, and the class sizes. Coach (Dave) Pietramala confirmed all of my beliefs about the school and what it had to offer me. I believe Hopkins is the perfect school for me to continue to develop as an athlete and a student. To sum up why I chose Hopkins is simply to say because it’s Hopkins!”

Other comments: “I owe so much gratitude to so many people for their help throughout the years including the following: C2C Lacrosse, John Marano and all the C2C coaches; my high school coaches, Kyle Hartzell and Terry Kimener; The Plano West Lacrosse Club and all of my previous coaches; my family, and most importantly my big brother, Christopher, who spent hours shooting his cannon at me to make me a better goalie!”
