How long have you been involved in lacrosse?
I have been playing for about seven years. I think I played my first youth lacrosse game when I was four or five years old.
What do you like best about it?
Lacrosse is a fast game and I like that no game is ever the same. My teammates are from different schools around Gainesville like Kanapaha, Queen of Peace Catholic Academy and Oak Hall School. I like meeting new people and making new friends.
What team do you play for?
Would you like to go to college or the Olympics and continue on in lacrosse?
I want to play high school lacrosse at Oak Hall School and definitely want to play college lacrosse.
Who is your athlete inspiration?
My older brother Michael. He is a junior at Oak Hall School and plays for the team. My professional idol in lacrosse is Paul Rabil. He is an awesome player.
