Who is your all-time favorite Hoya?
My favorite all-time Hoya is Brodie Merrill. He is the best lacrosse player and one of the best athletes to step foot on our campus. He was my high school coach and a major reason in why I decided to come to Georgetown.
What volunteer work do you do?
As a member of the lacrosse team, we make it our goal to get out in the community and give back to the less fortunate. This year, I’ve been able to help out at Hoya Dreams down at the Georgetown Hospital with a few teammates, volunteered at lacrosse camps in the area, and always look forward to the team’s annual Cycle for Survival day.
How do you give 110% for Georgetown?
We try to get out as a team and do as many community service projects as we can. Giving back to those less fortunate is important to us because we have been given so much from the whole Georgetown community.
What would you like to say to donors of The Annual Fund for Georgetown Athletics?
Thank you so much, on behalf of the entire men’s lacrosse team, for making our dreams become a reality and allowing us to go out and play the game we love every single day.
