Recruit Profile
Motivated team player with endless reserves, unmatched work ethic, and consistent intangibles. Aggressive/driven multi-sport athlete who is unselfish, disciplined, and very coachable. Has speed and excellent vision/lax IQ.

Ever since I could remember I've always had a lacrosse stick in my hand, even before I joined my town team in the second grade. Growing up I played many different sports, but my passion for the sport of lacrosse was always paramount. My hope is to play highly competitive lacrosse, at a University known not just for their lacrosse program, but also for the quality of education I will receive there.

During my freshman year, I was a starting varsity midfielder on my HS team along with making the NJ Riot AA club team for the summer season. I believe my effective communication, enthusiastic spirit, and strong drive are what make me an optimal teammate and competitor.

In the game - I'm a tough and reliable asset on defense, priding myself on hustle plays and valuable defensive turnovers. Additionally, I have a keen sense of transitioning the ball and keeping possessions on the offensive side of the game. I consistently work tirelessly for my team by using some of my biggest strengths, such as successfully clearing the ball, initiating the offense, and getting other teammates open for a goal.

Outside of lacrosse - I am a starting midfielder on my high school varsity soccer team, earning a varsity letter since freshman year. I have also played for my high school JV basketball team. Academically, my competitive nature drives me to perform my best in the classroom and to continually challenge myself harder by taking Honors and AP classes.

Additionally, I am proud to say that I have been a member of the Boy Scouts of America since the 1st grade. I have recently completed my service project to earn the rank of Eagle Scout. As a Boy Scout, I've learned copious amounts of leadership skills, been involved in extensive amounts of volunteer work, developed a driven work ethic, and most importantly, embody an honest moral character.
