Recruit Profile
Multi-sport athlete that is coachable, disciplined and has high LAX IQ. Uses quickness and toughness to specialize in face-offs, but equally good on the field. Plays aggressive and smart.

I started playing lacrosse in the 5th grade and quickly developed a passion for the game. I am both a faceoff specialist and a midfielder. One of my biggest strengths on the lacrosse field is my overall quickness. I pride myself on my ability to change direction during dodges, accelerate quickly, maneuver through traffic, and utilize my hand speed. I have great field IQ that comes from being a point guard in basketball for many years, which also contributes to my vision on the field, always looking for the open teammate. I am notorious for throwing fakes that throw my opponents off, and I am also a solid defender which I believe comes from being a corner in football. What could arguably be my biggest strength is my ability to win faceoffs. I have become the specialist for my high school team, my LICI team, and most recently for the Seattle Starz Elite lacrosse team. I believe wrestling has helped me with toughness, both mentally and physically, and balance in this position.
Academics are a huge priority to me. Currently, I maintain a 4.0 GPA, which includes AP and advanced classes. I am a member of the National Honor Society, DECA, Link Leadership Crew and volunteer monthly at an Assisted Living facility. Another big part of my extra-curricular/academics is peer tutoring for developmentally disadvantaged. It has been a very rewarding experience to work with this population and I believe it has taught me patience and appreciation for the athletic opportunities and physical abilities I have. I was recently awarded Academic State Champion for Wrestling in the State of Washington.
I am a 3-sport varsity athlete competing for my school in football, wrestling and lacrosse. I believe each sport has helped develop skills that compliment lacrosse play -- from the discipline it takes to wrestle to the field awareness taught in football.
