It wasn’t until the seventh grade that I was introduced to field lacrosse within the schooling system. This helped me find a way to look forward to school, and I learned that schooling had to be done in order to get on the field. Jeremy and I knew nothing about College lacrosse until after we won our first State Title in ninth grade. Fifteen years old and we were receiving letters in the mail from some of the top D1 Lacrosse programs in the country, it was a big deal for our family. The pressure was on, I needed to beat school in order to play this game and although school didn’t work out, I never let that stop me from playing at the highest level. Nothing would stop me from reaching my ultimate goal of playing professional lacrosse. I’ve been cut, I’ve been benched, and I will always stick around. I want to show my kids that even when the odds are against you, all it takes is a goal and a dream."
