First, I’d like to thank my parents for supporting me step by step through this recruiting process. Without my parents, I wouldn’t have had as many opportunities as I did.

Next, I’d like to thank all of my coaches from the past and present. Coach Curran, Coach Keel, Coach Solomon and Coach Daniel taught me everything I know about lacrosse. I wouldn’t be where I am today without them. Coach Maddox, Coach Marriott and Coach Curtin helped me take my game to the next level. I’d also like to thank Coach Savage for training me.

Finally, I’d like to thank Coach (Mikey) Thompson and the coaching staff of Christopher Newport University for giving me the opportunity to play and compete for such a great program.
