What aspects of your game are you working on to improve?
As an athlete I believe I am always trying to improve all aspects of my game but if I had to choose one, as a pole, I believe footwork and agility are the most important.

What makes you unique?
I am able to play all positions at a high level (including goal).  I also carry myself both on and off the field as a leader.

Who Are Your Role Models? Why?
I have many role models but if I had to choose one, it would be my coach Jamie Forster. Throughout my lacrosse career coach Jamie has pushed me very hard and has helped me to improve my overall game day.

What Would Your Teammates Say About You?
I think my teammates would describe me as a leader and team player.

Who Helped You Improve Your Game The Most?
Once again, it would be coach Jamie who coached my older brothers.  When I just started playing lacrosse he would invite me to play in higher division games, against older players, to introduce me to playing against faster, stronger, more knowledgeable athletes.

What MLL or College Lacrosse Player Do You Model Your Game After?
I think I model my game a lot after Mike Manley, as I have a natural feel for the ball and like to be a leader on teams.

What Is Your Favorite Subject In High School?
My favorite subject would have to be English.

What Do You Want To Accomplish In High School?
Academically, I would like to maintain an honor roll standing and athletically to have the opportunity to showcase my lacrosse skills for multiple D1 Universities.
