Recruit Profile
A driven and disciplined multi-sport athlete who is a coachable, team player with a strong Lax IQ.

I began playing lacrosse when I was 10 years old and I immediately fell in love with the game! My first season I won the Rising Star MVP award and I have been working hard ever since! I play defense for my club team, Lax Maniax 2023 Black. I am aggressive to the ball and have a strong Lax IQ and very good stick skills which are a benefit as I play high defense and sometimes backer with my club team. On my high school team, St. Augustine High School, I started every game with my Varsity teamas a freshman. I play some midfield but mostly defense.

In 2019 I played at the Maverick National Lacrosse Classic in Delaware and at US Lacrosse Nationals 14U. Last fall I was invited to the Under Armour Callback Academy and this summer I was invited to Nike's Elite 120.

I also play in a flag football league. I am looking forward to starting my 9th year of flag football. I have won 3 championships, finished as runner up 3 times and I am so excited for the new season to start.

I finished 8th grade with 3 high school honors classes completed (Spanish I, Algebra I and Physical Science) and last year as a freshman I took all honors classes including pre-AICE Spanish II honors, Biology I honors, Geometry honors and English I honors.

I am also part of the Teaching Academy at my high school and I enjoy my opportunities volunteering at local elementary schools with the Teaching Academy, volunteering throughout my local community with my family, and also helping with community projects and fundraisers with my dads Rotary Club, Sunrise Rotary of St. Augustine.
