Recruit Profile
I am known as someone who strongly contributes to my team's culture. I am a tall, fast LSM with exceptional stick skills, clear on-field communication & strong overall LAX IQ.

I started playing lacrosse at the age of 9, and have had a pole in my hands from the beginning. I believe this experience separates me from other poles. If you are watching me play, you will not see me miss a Ground-Ball. I've been playing year round lacrosse for 8 years including 6 years of indoor box lacrosse and 7 years of club lacrosse.

I made the decision to enroll at St. Augustine Preparatory School (Richland, NJ) due primarily to the culture and reputation of the school especially, as it is aligned with the lacrosse program under JC Valore. I have played with the SouthShore Club Lacrosse Program since 5th grade.

In addition to lacrosse, I was involved in scouting and have huge passion for the outdoors. Due to my involvement with scouting and as a student at St. Augustine, I understand the value of service to the community. In school, I am involved in many extra-curricular activities such as Choir and Student Ambassadors. In addition, I have two younger brothers who play lacrosse as well. I try to help them and their team/coaches by volunteering to string sticks & have helped the recreation league by volunteering during field setup days. I realize the importance of giving back to the game since it was something that was so important to be in developing MY passion for the sport.

Personally, I am interested in a career in either the medical profession or in business. While in college, I plan to manage my time in order to balance my lacrosse team responsibilities and academic responsibilities. It is very important for me to do well academically. I am proficient in time & task management. I am more familiar with schools in the East, but would be open to the possibility of playing anywhere.

I have played for teams my whole career with excellent coaching. I understand that I have a responsibility to contribute to my team's culture by following my coach's directives, and positively reinforcing my teammates through on-field play to the best of my ability and by looking for ways to motivate my peers and learn from mistakes. Thank you for taking the time to read my bio.
