Why did you choose this college?

F&M was my first choice because of the outstanding academics.

What are your first memories of the sport?

Playing with other 3rd and 4th graders in PBG rec which would become a dominating Storm travel team.

What part of the process was most surprising to you about the recruiting process and what would you like to pass on to those who are going to face it in the future?

Don’t always get dazzled by Division 1 schools. Keep all your options open. I feel it is more important to find the school with the right fit. For me it was academics first then Lacrosse.

Who would you like to thank for helping you get here?

I would first like to thank all my teammates that I shared such great memories with. My Benjamin coaches Shane Rye and staff. My travel coach Terry Crowley. My support Aida, Ali, Tim Teahan and Mr Levitt. And especially my Father Mike Buttelman who taught me the game, he was my first lax coach in rec, first travel coach for PB Storm and coached me in my last Travel game for Florida National.
