Fairfield University (DI)

Why did you pick this college?

“I chose to go to Fairfield because the first time I walked on campus I knew I could definitely see myself going there. It had everything I wanted in a college. I knew that Fairfield would challenge me both academically and athletically. The campus is beautiful and the lacrosse team really made me feel that this would be the place I could call home for the next four years of my life.”

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

“Some advice I would give to younger Blast players is to not rush into things. When you are considering going to a college take lacrosse out of the picture. If you can’t see yourself going there without playing lacrosse then thats okay theres still many options! This is a huge decision so you want to take your time.”

What’s your favorite part of playing for Blast?

“Definitely my teammates. We have all grown so close throughout the years. I will always value the friendships I have made throughout my years in Philly Blast.”
