When did you first start playing lacrosse?
When i first started playing lax i was 3 years old and of course for NGE. That was the very first time I ever picked up a lax stick, and now I consider it my third arm.

What is your favorite lacrosse memory?
My favorite lax memory is when we went on to win the CanAm Championship in 2011 and then going to Akwesasne for my very first presidents cup.  Also playing with the same group of guys I've grown up with all my life.

Who were your favorite players growing up and why?
Well I only had one favorite player when I was growing up and that is my older brother, Mike Stevens. He has taught me everything I know about the game and how it is to be played since i was 3 years old. As his little brother I hope to accomplish the things he has done, even though those are some big shoes to fill.

What does it mean to you to play for Newtown?
It means a lot to me to play for Newtown.  I've been born and raised in Newtown and still reside there. Newtown is my life an there's nothing in this world that can change that. Green and gold is what I sweat an bleed: enough said!

How did it feel to be the NGE leading scorer for the 2012 season?
It felt good to be leading score for NGE in 2012. Ever since i can remember I've always been a goal scorer. I've always told myself I can be that guy to help the team as much as possible on the offensive side of the floor and put points up when we need them most.

What are your thoughts on this year's team and the upcoming 2013 season?
My thoughts on the team for the 2013 season are looking good, very good. We have a lot of talent and skills and we are running hard, harder then ever. The CanAm teams this year better be ready for us.  CanAm championship and Presidents Cup here we come!
