How long have you been playing lacrosse?:I have been playing lacrosse for 10 years.
What is your favorite aspect of lacrosse?: I love the competitive nature of lacrosse and my teammates.
Do you have a favorite moment of memory from a lacrosse game?: Oak Knoll winning the TOC on June 19th. Even though I was injured and unable to play, being part of such an amazing team and winning the TOC title was unreal.
Have you ever suffered a major sports related injury? If so, how do you feel that improved your game?: I am recovering from a stress fracture in my hip. I did not need surgery, but the healing process feels like forever. I am more motivated to recover, get fit, and prepare for my senior season of high school lacrosse. This injury changed my perspective as well. I know that I cannot take a single practice or game for granted and I need to always give my all.
Do you have any hobbies or interests outside of sports?: I like to golf, read, and play instruments. I can play the guitar and piano.
How does being an athlete inspire you to do good?: Being an athlete inspires me to work hard and challenge myself. Playing lacrosse has taught me how to win with humility and lose with grace. Being an athlete allows me to channel my competitiveness and has taught me a lot about myself. At Oak Knoll we sponsor a kid through the Casey Powell World Lacrosse Foundation each year. This serves as a constant reminder that I play for something bigger than myself.
