How did you get into lacrosse?
My friend had a couple sticks, and we would toss in his backyard in 5th grade and signed up a couple months later.

What’s your favorite lacrosse memory?
Favorite memory was playing in the semifinal game for CIF into two overtimes.

How did your season go this year?
My season this year was good, but we fell short of making the MCLA tournament.

What advice can you give to younger players looking to bring their games to the next level?
For younger players, hit the wall and jump rope. The wall will bring your stick skills up, and jumping rope will increase your speed.
