Q: How has the adjustment been going from high school athlete to a college athlete?

The most notable difference between collegiate and high school lacrosse is the overall speed of the game. The sheer athleticism and skill of college athletes inevitably leads to a faster more physical game. Furthermore, the game is more tactical. To truly succeed on the field a player must be well versed on the rules and strategies. Greater emphasis is also placed on the controllable aspects of the game like strength, conditioning, and stick skills.

Q: Why Boston College? 

I chose Boston College because it has a stellar academic reputation and an exceptional lacrosse program. The beauty of the campus and it’s proximity to the city of Boston  also factored in my decision.

Q: What other schools were you considering?

I was considering schools like Princeton and the other Ivy League schools, but once I visited BC, I instantly knew it was the right fit.

Q: What is the goal in your freshman season at Boston College? 

As a freshman I have set challenging, but realistic, goals for myself. I hope to continue to develop as a player and to have a meaningful impact in every game. We have a highly skilled team with great senior leadership, so I am trying to learn as much as a can from them and incorporate it into my personal play.

Q: Do you see lacrosse being part of your life in any way after college?

Lacrosse has played a central role in my life since fourth grade. It has taught me the importance of discipline and hard-work; these are lessons I with utilize in future endeavors. I am not quite sure what the future holds for me in terms of playing lacrosse post college, but lacrosse has truly helped shape who I am. I love playing the game and hope to see it grow for generations to come.
