Recruit Profile
Multi-sport student athlete (football/lacrosse); Strong LAX IQ; Quick on the draw; Doesn't Quit

I started playing lacrosse when I was 7 years old primarily playing middie. As I progressed up in skill and age, I developed a passion for the Face Off position. Over the past 5 years, I have participated in the National Face Off Showcase. My strength is primarily around technique, strength and speed and my ability to quickly get the ball out of the draw.

I am currently a rising senior and Captain at Vandegrift High School and had a win rate of 86% (272/317) to go along with 13 goals, 10 assists and 213GBs. I was also awarded Vandegrift's Second To None Award which is Vandegrift's highest award given to students at our high school as well as Team MVP. This year I was named to the THSLL All State team for Face Off and was recognized as a US Lacrosse All American.

Sophomore stats were a 90% FO (182/201) along with 111 Ground Balls, 3 Goals and 4 assists through 11 games in our shortened season as part of our varsity D1 team in 2020. I was recognized by the coaching staff as the Overall MVP for our 2020 team. My freshman year (2019), I had a 73% win rate at face off (129/176) with 72 GB, 4 assists and 3 goals for our varsity team.

I was an Under Armour All American playing FOGO for the Southwest team in 2019, 2020 and 2021 and was named MVP for middies at the NXT Summer Showcase in Philadelphia in 2019. I was also recognized as an All Star at the 2020 Adrenaline Black Card and 2021 Maverik Showtime.

Academically, I have maintained straight A's and was part of Junior Honor Society and was just inducted into National Honor Society as a sophomore. I am in classes that are AP or Pre-AP and have received straight A's.

I am also involved in Young Men's Service League which provides philanthropic services throughout the Austin area.

Athletically, I also play football for Vandegrift High School in Austin, Texas as well as the lacrosse team. I was recently named to the Vipers Football Leadership Council chosen by my fellow teammates. This spring (2021) I broke the Defensive Back Squat record by squatting 500 pounds and start at cornerback for the 6A Vipers (2nd Team All District 2020 and 1st Team All District 2021).
