Why I Use STX
I truly believe STX has the best products. I grew up using their gear and have always loved their quality and innovation. My Dad used to rep their products and would go to lax camps during the summers to promote the brand so I guess you could say I am a second generationer.
A. I was 5 years old when I started playing Lacrosse. My Dad used to bring to practice when he was coaching my brothers’ team. I was the ball boy. I was instantly hooked.
A. Michael Jordan. I admire his unrelenting athleticism, perseverance and leadership qualities.
A. Winning the State Championship for the third time during high school. I actually documented the entire season on my channel. It’s called the Ride Series and ironically, we ended up going all the way that year. I was really proud of my teammates. It was such a great moment.
A. Gravity – John Mayer. I only listen to his music during Pregame because it’s calming. Most people like to get super pumped, but I find that more calming music keeps me focused.
A. Step Brothers
A. Stop trying to make it to the NBA. Lol. Honestly, I hold myself to an extremely high standard and work very hard to accomplish my goals. There are a few minor things I might go back and change but overall, I am happy with the decisions I made up to this point.
A. Running Quarters
A. One of my best friends Danny Maltz (Maryland Attack). He and I grew up playing lacrosse together. We tried to go to the same college, but it didn’t work out. It’s great playing with someone who understands and can predict your next move without even speaking. Whether it was an assist, or a goal Dan the Man was always there.
A. My dad. He was a four time All-American at The University of Virginia. Taught me the game growing up. He still gives me advice and guidance long distance now. I have a lot of respect for all his accolades and commitment to the game. He still holds a few records at UVA.
A. Explosive, Coachable, Humble
A. Wall Ball. A timeless lacrosse drill that is so basic but necessary for any lax player.
A. Pot belly ham, turkey, and cheese sub
A. “Champions make different types of decisions” Eric “ET” Thomas. He recently visited our school. I was blown away by his speech. So personable and profound! I wrote one of his quotes on a piece of cardboard and hung is over my door in my room. I read it every day.
A. The Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. It’s a historical stadium!
