Recruit Profile
Communicative, very strong lax IQ, good spirited, hard working, multi-sport athlete, strong stick skills, great footwork. Captain of 2021 and 2022 HS Varsity lacrosse team.

I started playing lacrosse in 6th grade and immediately knew I wanted to be a defender. To me preventing a goal/causing a turnover is just as important as scoring on the other end. I made Varsity lacrosse as an 8th grader, and freshman year started over half of the games. I am extremely comfortable using both hands while catching and passing as well as carrying the ball. I pride myself on my communication and positioning off ball as well as my overall lacrosse IQ. I also pride myself at hustling on and off of the field in the transition game. I am taking college prep classes and am in my 4th year of Spanish. I am a member of Key Club and have coached youth lacrosse teams for the past 2 summers.
