PERSONAL STATEMENT
I love the game...team over myself...brotherhood over wins. Coachable, strong lax IQ - disciplined.

PERSONAL INFORMATION
 
Describe Your Playing Style?: My default is to keep the offense calm and relaxed. I tend to be the player to slow things down and settle. However, if I feel particularly comfortable with a team I am on, I will push the ball more often and take a fast break off of a faceoff win. In terms of dodging, I am particularly good at alley dodges but am also comfortable with dodges from both up-top and from X.
Personal Statement: I love the game...team over myself...brotherhood over wins. Coachable, strong lax IQ - disciplined.

Other activites and interests: I have recently become interested in biology and have become apart of my schools research team. Currently I am working on a project to create a working model of alcoholism in zebra fish. However I also enjoy music,--mostly old school rap and R&B--drama, and poetry. Poetry has been something that I've loved from a young age.
Who's been the biggest influence on my sports career and why?: My mother has been the biggest influence on my sports career because she has been my support, my coach, my sports-therapist, my critic, and my fan since day 1. I couldn't have made it this far with out her.
About Me: I have been playing lacrosse since the age of 8. I actually came across the game by accident and fell in love instantly. I'm a powerful dodger from up-top and the alleys. I am comfortable with both hands. I am an excellent student. My favorite class is Chinese. I've been studying Chinese for 5 years and have had an opportunity to visit China. I also love poetry and old school rap. My favorite rapper is Jay-Z and while I do not have a favorite poet, I love poets and writers from the romantic era the most.
