Recruit Profile
Committed to excellence, competitive defensive transition player, with strong Lax IQ. Coachable, dependable, team player with elite field and national level box lacrosse experience with desire to grow as player.

I started playing lacrosse in grade one and have played ever since. I also played hockey and was a goalie. I played travel hockey for the Atlanta Phoenix from Novice through Bantam Major when time commitments for two travel sports became too much. It was at that time that I committed to playing lacrosse.

In field lacrosse I am a strong defensive player, routinely forcing turnovers and getting ground balls for the transition game. Through the years I have played attack and middie but settled into defense on the club team level occasionally playing LSM. I think that a strength that I have is that I can see the field well and often intercept or knock down passes. I like playing when everyone on the team is playing well and I try to encourage my teammates when I am with them. I feel very comfortable with the ball in my stick and have good speed when needed.

I started playing box lacrosse when I was 10 and have had a lot of experience with it. I have made the USBoxla National team for the past 5 years as a defensive transition player. I have also played for CaliLax All-Stars since Peewee and have had the opportunity to play for four summers in BC and Alberta against their top box teams. I have also had the opportunity to play box for Team Quebec playing against Ontario teams as well as attend the Canadian Bantam Nationals in Saskatoon. I have won the Team MVP recognition at the Canada Day tournament 2 times along with multiple Player of the Game recognitions over the years.

I think that my box experience and being a hockey goalie provide me with a defensive awareness that benefits my play. This past year I was honored with being named a team captain at The Hill Academy.

In field lacrosse I have received several recognitions:
2019 NLF at ING 2023 Honorable Mention
2019 NLU All-Star Team
2020 US Club Lacrosse 2023 All-Tournament Team
2020 Five Star Elite All-Star Team

Donny has continued to impress me over the past year of getting to work together. His tremendous lacrosse IQ enables him to be effective both on and off ball. He is capable of disrupting an offence as well as communicating and organizing the defence. Evidently, Donny is a strong leader both on and off the field. He is extremely coachable and is always eager to expand his strong understanding of the game, which is extremely valuable as he continues to grow as a player. I strongly endorse Donny; he is definitely a player that I would like to have on my team at the next level.

From a box perspective Donny has has numerous Canadian tours playing top caliber teams in both BC and Ontario. Great defense/transition player that can compete with the world's best. Smart player, great footwork, team guy - he'll surely find himself in the NLL one day as a back door anchor.

Donny has all the tools of an elite defensemen (great feet, incredible IQ, physical, and an active stick) but more importantly is one of the most coachable kids I have ever been around. He dedication and hunger to improve has created a positive ripple effect here in our program. He is a strong leader who elevates those around him. Whoever gets Donny at the next level will be very lucky as he is an incredible teammate and will be a difference maker from Day 1
