Why did you pick this college?

I chose George Washington University because I love the location and size of the school and I know that I will be challenged both academically and in lacrosse. The lacrosse coaches and team have been very welcoming and communicative with me throughout the process.

What advice would you give to younger Blast players beginning the recruiting process?

Take your time with the process and keep an open-mind when looking at schools. Take every opportunity to talk with a coach or visit a school – that is the only way you will find what fits you best! Always work hard at clinics and tournaments because coaches notice your work ethic and desire to learn.

What’s your favorite part of playing for Blast?

Philly Blast has connected me with amazing coaches and players who always work together and make me a better player. I have developed so much as a player and enhanced my leadership and communication skills both on and off the field.

What other colleges were you considering?

Franklin and Marshall, Quinnipiac, American, Georgetown, Temple
