Recruit Profile
Strong, tough finisher. Opportunistic, creative feeder. Smart off-ball player. High-Honors. Hist/Lit/French/Sci. Loves: Weight-Room, BoxLax & Team. A leader.
• LAX BACKGROUND: I have played on a club team each summer & fall from u10s through High School. I play box lacrosse in the winter. In middle school, I enjoyed playing ice hockey and my school's cross country, basketball, and lacrosse teams. I work relentlessly and strive for success – on the field and in the weight room. • PLAYING STYLE: Tough. Opportunistic. Patient. Poised. I see the field well. I finish in traffic around the cage. I ride aggressively. I dodge and finish from either wing and from behind - both lefty or righty. I love to feed the ball and would rather dodge-to-draw & feed than take a lower-percentage shot. I play to win. • LAX IQ: I am a diligent student in the classroom. I love books, I read all the time, and have learned that books, teachers, scholars, and mentors can pass along much more knowledge than I could possibly gain all on my own. I apply this to my passion for lacrosse. I take advantage of every opportunity to learn about the game -- from coaches, teammates and opponents. I am fortunate to have great coaching and highly talented teammates on my school, club, and US Lacrosse NJ South teams. Experience has given me an understanding of situational lacrosse, multiple offensive sets, identifying defensive slides, creativity, field-vision, and how aggressively-unselfish play yields the best results. I will work to improve my skill-set as I grow in the sport of lacrosse. • COLLEGE: Junior and Sophomore years at Princeton High School (PHS), I balanced: full Fall-Ball seasons; 20+ game Box Lacrosse winter-seasons; daily running before-school; daily training after-school; French Club; Current Events Club; Strength & Conditioning Club; Varsity Spring Lacrosse; and a full schedule of honors and AP courses. Freshman year I also took Accelerated/Honors: French, Science, and Math. In college, I hope to study history and/or science. I seek a collegiate environment where the pursuit of academic excellence and athletic excellence are both considered important, and where I will be able to achieve success, both as a focused student and as a dedicated player. I enjoy travel. I was in England (August 2016 and again August 2017) setting-up a project at the University of Oxford. I returned August 2018 as a Biology Intern. I love Box-Lacrosse, weight-training, and my team. SAT = 99+%-tile. National-Merit Semi-Finalist. AP-Scholar w/Distinction. wGPA=4.43 (cumulative).
