Recruit Profile
Multi-sport student athlete (football/lacrosse); Strong LAX IQ; Quick on the draw; Doesn't Quit

I started playing lacrosse when I was 7 years old primarily playing middie. As I progressed up in skill and age, I developed a passion for the Face Off position. Over the past 5 years, I have participated in the National Face Off Showcase. My strength is primarily around technique, strength and speed and my ability to quickly get the ball out of the draw.

I just finished my sophomore year at Vandegrift High School and had a win rate of 90% (182/201) along with 111 Ground Balls, 3 Goals and 4 assists through 11 games in our shortened season as part of our varsity D1 team in 2020. I was recently recognized by the coaching staff as the Overall MVP for our 2020 team. My freshman year (2019), I had a 73% win rate at face off (129/176) with 72 GB, 4 assists and 3 goals for our varsity team.

Prior to my sophomore year of high school, I was an Under Armour All American playing FOGO for the Southwest team and was named MVP for middies at the NXT Summer Showcase in Philadelphia.

Academically, I have maintained straight A's and was part of Junior Honor Society and was just inducted into National Honor Society as a sophomore. I am in classes that are AP or Pre-AP and have received straight A's.

I am also involved in Young Men's Service League which provides philanthropic services throughout the Austin area.

Athletically, I also play football for Vandegrift High School in Austin, Texas as well as the lacrosse team. I was recently named to the Vipers Football Leadership Council chosen by my fellow teammates. This spring I broke the Defensive Back Squat record by squatting 405 pounds.
