Where are you from?

I am from San Diego, California.

Why did you chose Deerfield for your Post-Graduate year?

I chose Deerfield because it was really the only prep school that I visited that had a strong sense of community and a solid lacrosse team.

When and how did you start playing lacrosse?

I started playing lacrosse in second grade after my dad saw the sport being played at a park.

What does your off-season look like?

My offseason is pretty casual.

I select only a handful of tournaments to go to and stay in shape by surfing twice a day.

We heard you’re trying a new sport. How is water polo going?

Water polo is a blast. We spend most practice in the shallow end learning how to “eggbeat.” Shoutout Coach Jason; he’s the man.

What are you most excited for this year?

I’m most excited for lacrosse season and FIFA 19 as they’re my main two sports.

Do you have plans to play lacrosse in the future?

I will be attending The University of Notre Dame next year for lacrosse.

Anything else?

Matt Pecora is a beast and mad cute.
