What type of player you are?

I’m a gritty player who will use my body to get to the middle and set picks to open up my teammates.

What is your pre-game meal?

Pasta and chicken

Do you have any superstitions or pre-game rituals?

I always put the right piece of equipment on before the left.

Who has been the biggest influence on your lacrosse career?

Merrick Thomson. He was my coach for a couple of teams when I was first starting Junior and was big helping me transition from minor straight to Jr. A. Expanded my skill set and helped me develop a mind for the game.

What jersey number did you wear growing up or in Junior and why?

#16 and #27. My brothers and I all wore 16 growing up so it was kind of a family tradition. When 16 wasn’t available, I would always pick 27 as a backup.

What NLL player did you look up to the most as a kid?

Colin Doyle. I watched a lot of Rock games growing up and looked up to the captain.

What is your favourite memory from Junior lacrosse?

My last season when I got traded to Burlington and finally got to play playoff lacrosse. The intensity and experience playing both at home and going into Mimico Arena was something I never was a part of before.

What was your favourite memory from College lacrosse?

This past season we won the Canadian University Field Lacrosse (CUFLA) championship. It was the first time Western has won since 2001.

What do you think will be the toughest/biggest adjustment to pro lacrosse?

The speed of the game. Always having to be ready for anything and not having nearly as much time to make a decision and execute a play.

What is one fun fact about you that not many people know about?

I build artificial indoor hockey rinks during the summer.

Toronto Rock
