Teams & Coach Information
Community service is important to me first of all because that is how I was raised. Selfishly, it feels good
to contribute to the community. I participate quite a bit in school sponsored leadership events to help needy students and children in our town. From Christmas events that help those less fortunate to helping tutor
those for their exams, it is really rewarding to see a kid having fun and doing better in school.
I referee lacrosse games at my youth leagues and have coached those same 11 to 13 year olds. Giving back to these kids is a way to build a legacy for our program as well. Most importantly, it is a great feeling for a player to come up to me and tell me of his success from what I have taught him. That is reward enough.
On the field I try to think of how to communicate to my teammates so they can take a positive out of any situation. For instance, rather than criticizing a player, I will always offer an option or a different way to
attack a problem so my teammate can be part of a solution rather than the cause of a problem.
Off the field, I try to lead by example by doing well in school, participating in community service and school programs and being a positive representative of our lacrosse program.
I attend all conditioning, off-season workouts and do my own independent workouts. I do the best I can to eat right, eating protein and fresh fruits and vegetables. I have never smoked or chewed tobacco and
consider it detrimental to my development as a player.
I do not drink or take any performance enhancing drugs as I consider that cheating.On
