Recruit Profile
I'm told I'm coachable. I lead by example. I'm vocal. I passionately give 100% on/off the field. I'm humble.

Lacrosse is more than a sport to me. It is a lifestyle that doesn't end when I step off the field. I respect the game, the referees, my coaches, my teammates and my opponents. The life lessons learned in lacrosse make me a better person.
I feel the Defense is a singular unit that must communicate and trust for it to work as one. I am a smart, aggressive player that wants to dictate the play. I welcome the opportunity to cover top attack men. I was selected to the All-Star team for all 8th graders in NJ. My club coaches chose me as a top 60 2022 graduate to attend the Apex 60 showcase. As much as I love lacrosse, my top priority is my academics. Lacrosse helps me to be organized and disciplined to put the same effort in the classroom as I do on the field.
