What type of player you are?

I’m a defensive player that will work hard for every loose ball and push the ball in transition when given the chance.

What is your pre-game meal? 

Chicken Parm and a Caesar salad.

Do you have any superstitions or pre-game rituals?

I have lots of pre-game rituals but my biggest one is probably that I always put on my gear from left to right. I’m not exactly sure why I started doing this but once I started it just stuck.

Who has been the biggest influence on your lacrosse career?

My biggest influences would have to be Pat Coyle and Pete Tellis. I was able to learn so much from these two about the game of lacrosse during my career in Coquitlam and the things they have taught me, I will carry with me for the rest of my career.

What jersey number did you wear growing up?

I had a lot of different numbers growing up but the only one with a story behind it would be #82. Growing up my brother always liked/wore number #81 so I think as a young kid I subconsciously made the decision that #82 was going to be my new favorite number.

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

For me it would have to be John Grant Jr. just because of the pure excitement factor he brings every time he steps on the floor.

What is your favorite memory from Junior lacrosse?

Winning the Minto Cup in 2016. It was the biggest series I have ever played in and will be a memory I will have forever.

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

I think for me the biggest adjustment I will have to make is to the speed of the game. The jump from junior to the pro level is massive and the faster I am able to adjust to that the more successful I will be.

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

I’ve got a huge sweet tooth, especially for sour candy.
