What is one word you would use to describe DHG: Personable

What’s one word to describe the mark you are making on collegiate athletic history? An honor and blessing

How did you get started with lacrosse? Before college, I had never played lacrosse. My freshman year, I joined a club level team and loved the sport. I never imagined our club team would evolve into a Division 1 team!

As a team leader, how do you motivate your team? I believe that we should always take advantage of any opportunity that presents itself so I really try to inspire our team to take care of themselves physically and mentally.  This means leading by example- eating right, resting and being of the right mind-set for each game.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?  I am really just a southern boy at heart. I love being outdoors, fishing, sports and hanging out with friends and family.
