Recruit Profile
Committed midfielder since 2nd grade Positive faceoff trajectory training with Jerry Ragonese & Joe Nardella Two club sport athlete (swimming) dedicated to hard training in technique, agility, and weights Coachable, team-player, resilient

I started playing lacrosse in 2nd grade and was always a competitive midfielder. I have also been a competitive swimmer beginning at the same time. I always knew that I would have to choose between the two sports in high school if I wanted to dedicated the time to one I intended to play in college. I choose lacrosse following my sophomore year, though I always knew it would be my choice. I will continue to swim for high school in my junior and senior years for cross training and commitment to the team.

I started going to faceoff training with my younger brother in 9th grade and really took to it. I train at least weekly with Jerry Ragonese from the Faceoff Academy and supplement with training from Joe Nardella and the Lenskold Brothers (Brian from Rutgers, Ritchie from Penn & Joey from Delaware). I have only competed in the faceoff position for the past two summers and have objectively done well. I joined BBL Black this year to test myself against the best. While I believe I have been competitive, I also believe I have a lot more potential and train hard in faceoffs, competition, agility and weights to excel against top competitors in college.

I am committed to public service as well. My siblings and I formed a non-profit about 5 years ago to promote natural remedies for abused and special needs children. Programs include swimming for autistic children, healing gardens for survivors of child sexual abuse and supporting organization for other child-centered charities such as Special Olympics, St. Jude and YMCA Strong Kids Campaign. One of our most successful programs has been SNUGS at Yale where we provide swim lessons to over 70 autistic children from the Greater New Haven area since swimming is the number cause of death for their demographic. We are currently rolling out the program to several other univesities and I intend to dos so wherever I enroll.
