Recruit Profile
Passionate player with a lot of grit. Strong desire to compete/improve. Physical, high IQ, skilled player. I love the game.

I am a third generation player. In my family there are collegiate lacrosse players in my grandfather’s generation, including a national championship in the 1960s, who still travel across the country regularly to watch me play. My father played four years of Division 1 lacrosse and professionally in the MILL. Everyone in my house plays except for my mother who has become a huge fan. I have had a lacrosse stick for as long as I can remember. In sixth grade I tried out for my first club team and made the “B” team. Within a half a season, I worked my way onto the “A” team and have since become a very important player to the team’s current success at the high school level. Lacrosse plays a large part of family life in my house.

I have a well-balanced game. I score goals. I feed/pass/assist. I understand off-ball play. I ride like my life depends on it. I can take a hit as well as I can give one. I protect the ball. I know and respect the rules. I have a strong weak hand. I know my way around a weight room. I appreciate and enjoy being part of a team.

I need to continually improve in all areas but my current focus is to increase the range of my outside shooting. For this I have a backyard cage with a backup net.

I’m serious about my academics. I enjoy school and I am successful in the classroom. I was admitted to the magnet Liberal Arts and Sciences High School (LASA) which is currently ranked by US World News as the 28th best public high school in America. It is not an easy road as many in my class have already dropped out, but my goal is to graduate towards the top of my class and I am currently on track for this goal. Given the academic focus of this school and its lack of an athletic department, I must play lacrosse for another high school’s team. To get to practice after school every day takes two hours between buses (school or public), walking and car rides. But going to LASA is rewarding and I love the game.

My goal is play at the collegiate level at a very rigorous school that will challenge me in the classroom and on the field.

Alex is cerebral, do-it-all attackman. As the son of a college lacrosse player, Alex has the basics ingrained into his game. He dodges with his head up; easily seeing where the slide comes from. He separates himself from other attackman with his commitment in clearing/riding and unselfish style of play.
