How old were you when you started playing lacrosse and what made you pick up a stick?

I started playing in 1st grade because both of my cousins played and I wanted to be like them. Also, my parents owned a lacrosse store in Yorktown.

What is your favorite lacrosse memory?

Beating John Jay 17-3 in the Section Finals my senior year (sorry Coach Bocklet).

Who was your favorite player to watch growing up?

Mike Powell. I used to emulate him in the backyard almost everyday. His quickness and vision is the best I've ever seen. 

What was your first stick?

Brine Shotgun with a Gait shaft
