How long have you been playing lacrosse for?
I've been playing lacrosse since I was in second grade.
Who are your coaches?
What is your favorite thing about IMG Academy and why?
My favorite thing about IMG Academy is the facilities. They're probably the nicest thing here. The grass fields are unlike anything I've ever seen. They look like golf fairways and the weight room is top-notch.
Do you have any pre-game rituals that help you prepare for a big game?
I always put my left shoe on first.
What is your favorite thing to do after you win a game?
After I win a game, I like to go spend time with my family.
What motivates you to push through a tough practice?
Just kind of the will to get better and to eventually get recruited to a D-I school motivates me to push through a tough practice.
