More LI, Philly Juniors Make Verbal Commitments

What will you major in/study? Education or Broadcast Communications.

Why did you choose Florida? "I chose The University of Florida for many reasons. One of the many reasons is that when I visited the campus for a weekend I loved everything about the school. I knew that I wanted a big school and I wanted it to have a lot of school spirit. When I visited and went to a football game, it went above and beyond my expectations. I also love the coaches and the girls on the team they made me feel like I was at home.

"Another major factor in my decision was I knew ever since I was little, that I wanted to play top ten lacrosse and have the opportunity to win a National Championship. Florida's NCAA ranking is third in the country and have an amazingly talented team that I believe will have an opportunity to play for a national championship. Another factor was academics. I really wanted to go to an academically competitive school and Florida is known for its academics. As soon as I visited the school I fell in love with it and knew that is where I wanted to be."

What is your high school team's outlook for next year? "As for my high school team, I think that we will be extremely successful next year. I believe that we have the talent and the ability to contest for a county championship. We all play with a ton of heart and desire for the game and I think we will be successful."
