Through my participation in the Youth Advisory Committee, I have been able to demonstrate leadership skills within the 15 member group. In 2014, I was chosen to represent the YAC group to discuss a hospital fundraiser on NBC 3's Philadelphia morning show. In addition, I have coordinated holiday food drives, for organizations such as the WMMR Camp Out for Hunger, by utilizing my contacts from various ice hockey teams.
On the field or on the ice, I demonstrate leadership during both practices and games. I am typically the first player to arrive and last player to leave at practice. After other players have left, I will stay late to work directly with the coaches on my skill development. I feel that this level of dedication has lead to increased performance during games and increased respect from my teammates. In 2015, I was the first middle school lacrosse player to move to the Caravel Academy high school level. I not only started for Caravel's high school JV team, I lead the team in points during the season. In addition, I played several varsity games which helped me earn my varsity letter in lacrosse as a middle school student. I also earned the Scholar Athlete Award for achieving a 3.65 GPA while earning my varsity letter in lacrosse.
I am extremely dedicated to maintaining a healthy diet and daily fitness routine. I am also a strong believer in multi-sport athletic development vs. single sport focus. Although my main sports are ice hockey and lacrosse, I am also a starting high school soccer goalie. I feel that a variety of exercises through participation in multiple sports has provided great benefits in both hockey and lacrosse performance.
Over the past 5 years I have attended several camps/clinics for both hockey and lacrosse. In 2010, I attended High Performance Hockey camp with former Philadelphia Flyer and current AHL assistant coach, Riley Cote. Mr. Cote is a strong believer in following a diet consisting of healthy, organic foods. Since attending his camp, I have made several changes in my diet and fitness routines in order to maintain peak athletic performance.
