My Lacrosse Story

I entered Marywood University in August of 2011 with the intent of playing lacrosse.  After trying out in the fall and not making the team, I was faced with three options.  I could give up the game I love, transfer to another school, or make the proper improvements to make the team.  I decided to spend the next year and a half working as hard and as smart as possible to improve my game.  492 days after being cut, I started in my first college game and scored my first collegiate goal.  I also went on to become an all-conference player and hold multiple records.  

When I was first cut, I blamed the coaches for not evaluating me properly and thought I was better than other players.  Looking back, I do not think I initially had the skills and talent to play as a freshman but with a passion for the game, I created an opportunity.
