Recruit Profile
Coachable, hard-working in all situations, quick and agile, but aggressive too. 2-way player, disciplined, strong Lax IQ

I started playing lacrosse in 7th grade. In 8th grade I started on varsity and led my club team in goals and assists. In 9th grade I lead the state in goals for a freshman, and was nominated for player of the week. That same summer I was the Minnesota Chill MVP. I also was mentioned by Kyle Harrison at the Legends SLC all star game. I am a 2-way player that can dodge behind, on the side and in front of the cage. I’m comfortable with both hands and I can finish anywhere on the field. I pride myself in being aggressive, but disciplined. I work hard on every element of a midfielder, including defense, ground balls, clears, and assisting. I coach lacrosse for St. Paul Youth Lacrosse. I snowboard for fun as well. I’m on high honors and have a 4.0 weighted gpa (3.6 unweighted), and I’m a member of national honors society. I take acc. Math, Science, English, Geography, and IB Spanish. Part of the MYP program I’m in at school requires me to do a personal project. I volunteered for Twin Cities Native Lacrosse, and wrote a letter to US lacrosse about the issues in native lacrosse. I’ve been a member of the FFA (future for agriculture) for two years, and I am the current president of the club. I participated in a non profit experience through the YMCA called Bold & Gold, and I do many activities through the YMCA like volunteering and trips in the boundary waters and Yellowstone. Although lacrosse is what I love most, I also am interested in the outdoors, education, and politics.
