Recruit Profile
Versatile, lefty attackman with creative scoring ability, field vision and lax IQ. Love being part of a team and competing together.

As a freshman starter at De La Salle HS, reigning NCS Champions coached by Johnny Christmas, I led the team in Assists and was 2nd in total points. I've also been a leading scorer on my West Coast Starz and ADVNC National club teams, and have earned invites for the PNW Nike National All-stars, Juniors Open, Showtime and Main Stage. I’ve grown up in a lacrosse family — my dad played Division 1 lacrosse in college and got me playing when I was 6 years old. I've had great coaches and developed a strong lax IQ, creative dodging, field vision and finishing. My other sports have been basketball, wide receiver/def-back in football, and skiing. I've been captain of several teams, and I enjoy the responsibility of being a leader on my teams. In my free time, I enjoy music, visual arts, and visiting and learning about new places.
