Why did you choose Frostburg?
I chose Frostburg for many reasons, but all in all because it was truly the best option for myself and my family. From my first visit on, I fell in love with everything about the school, people, and the lacrosse program. The team is filled with talent and run by an amazing coach, and I feel that I can make a positive impact right away. The school’s recent switch to Division 2, and having friends already attending there helped make the decision even easier.
Favorite High School Memory?
Scoring against and beating both of our biggest rivals junior year, and creating valuable friendships.
Favorite Club Team Memory?
Winning the championship in back to back tournaments the summer before senior year.
First, I would like to thank God for my abilities and this opportunity to continue playing the sport I love. I want to thank my wonderful parents, sister, and family for their endless love and support. Thank you to Coach Jolles and all of my other coaches for everything they’ve taught me. Another thank you to Coach Mattoon and Maryland Xtreme for developing me into the player I am today. Thank you to all of the college coaches who had their interest in me. Finally, I would like to thank all of my friends and teammates for their constant encouragement.
