Recruit Profile
Excellent student, multi-sport athlete, coachable leader, physical, fearless, creates team offensive opportunities.

Being from Northern Minnesota, I learned early to hunt, fish and play hockey. I started playing outdoor hockey at age 5. I spent countless hours rink ratting with friends, at team practices, and practicing on my own. I made local and regional traveling teams and have really enjoyed my hockey experiences. It was not until age 9 that I was introduced to lacrosse. I still enjoy playing hockey, but I am deeply passionate about playing lacrosse.

I started playing lacrosse for our Duluth area youth team. Our practices, games and tournaments were held on soccer fields, partial sand grass softball fields, and even golf course fairways. Our season starts a little later than most, as we must wait for the snow to melt and the fields to dry. As my game developed and my passion grew, I started receiving recognition from my coaches. It was recommended that I further my lacrosse training. I was also encouraged to join our local traveling team, The Jaxx. After a summer traveling with the Jaxx and some private coaching, I knew I wanted even more lacrosse. I wanted to try out for the top traveling teams in Minnesota and make my High School team as a freshman. With my goals set, I moved on through the tryout process.

In 2019, I was the only freshman to play, letter and was a section team selection for my high school Varsity lacrosse team. I made every lacrosse team I tried out for in the Twin Cities including my States 2022 top team, Team Minnesota where I travel 2.5 hours to practice 5 days a week in the summer. I was named to the All-Star team for the Twin Cities Lacrosse Showcase, APEX First Look Showcase, NXT Baltimore Showcase and the ID Showcase. High school hockey continues as well where I play Varsity defense.
