When did you first start playing lacrosse?
I first started playing when I was 13 years old for Newtown Minors.

What is your favorite lacrosse memory?
My favorite lacrosse memory would be winning the 2011 CanAm Champions Cup and going on to play in the Presidents Cup.

Who were your favorite players growing up and why?
My favorite player growing up would be Mike Stevens.  He was my minors coach and I always went to the Newtown Sr. games to watch.  He has basically taught me everything I know about lax.  Ironically, he is our coach again.

What does it mean to you to play for Newtown?
It means a lot to play for the NGE.  It was always my goal as a Newtown Minor to play for the men's team after.  I've had the chance to play with players like Trace White, Brian Stevens, Clint Jones, Glen Lay, and Mike Stevens.  Not to mention the many great players before us.

How did it feel to win the Kevin White Memorial award as the team's Unsung Hero?
It felt great to win the Kevin White Memorial award.  Kevin was a player that always hustled an gave 110%.  To recieve an award in his honor means a lot to me.  That being said, I would trade any personal awards for a championship.

What are your thoughts on this year's team and the upcoming 2013 season?
For the 2013 season we have very high expectations, as usual.  Everyone is practicing hard to regain the title of CanAm Champions.
