Congrats on Providence! What led you to choose Providence? What did the coaches tell you that made you choose to continue your career at Providence? Have you talked to any of the players yet?
I chose Providence because of its beautiful campus, great education, and great lacrosse program. The coaches told me that I would see a lot of playing time and that I would be a huge contributor to this team’s offense. When I went up to visit I got to talk to a couple of the guys and I heard nothing else other than how fun and great the school is on and off the field.
You were ranked as one of the top performers in the 2021 class during the Summer Showdown this past summer. What about the Summer Showdown that made you become a breakout performer? What was your favorite moment of the Summer Showdown? Was it a game, a play, etc?
The prep of our team really helped me individually succeed because it isn’t a solo sport, it takes a team to build a player and that’s what my teammates helped me accomplish.

I am mostly looking forward to winning the Long Island and possibly state championship, feels like we got a great shot this year and we are hoping to capitalize.

What is your greatest piece of advice for future high school recruits during the recruiting process?
My best advice for upcoming high school recruits would be, don’t take the first option and decide to weigh everything out and see what is the best school not only for lacrosse but where you can get a good education and be happy.
