Recruit Profile
Loves lacrosse, intelligent, student of the game, coachable, motivated, relentless, team first.

I started playing lacrosse when I was 7 with a local rec team and fell in love with the sport. In my youth years with Stars and Stripes Lacrosse Club, I played at the National Festival in Denver and in the National Club Championships in Tampa. During my early lacrosse career, I played every position, wherever I was needed. I started taking face offs just before freshman year of high school at the suggestion of my coach. It was the best decision and changed the course of my career. I have grown at the position to the point of placing third in both the Face Off Factory Fall Championship and the Face Off Academy National Showcase. At the Go, Fight, Win Showcase in 2019, I made the All Star Team. I received the Rookie of the Year award at Parkland High School for my playing time as freshman on the 20 -1 Conference Champion Varsity team and was due to start Varsity this year. This past fall, I recorded a 77% Face Off win percentage for Dukes Elite 2022 and 72% for Headstrong Lehigh Valley 2022 Elite Lacrosse Clubs. I am determined to grow even further to compete in college. I also have played other sports including wrestling and football, and am on the US Junior National Mens Indoor Field Hockey team. I am an excellent student, earning Principal's List maintaining above a 4.0 GPA, taking Honors courses. I serve my community through Boy Scouts, where I am a Life Scout, Senior Patrol Leader and on the road to Eagle, which is a goal of mine.
