Recruit Profile
I have a passion for DEFENSE! Strong Lax IQ with high work ethic and constant desire to get better. Team oriented. Multi-sport athlete.

I started playing lacrosse in 3rd grade and immediately took to defense. I like the physical aspect of the position, but also enjoy snatching ground balls and making runs into the offensive zone to set up an attacker with a scoring opportunity. I also play basketball, which I feel helps greatly with my footwork, speed, and conditioning. I am fully committed to the sport of lacrosse, however I also excel in the classroom, taking multiple honors courses. When not studying or on the field, I am in the weight room or using the ladder to increase my footwork.
