Why did you choose this college?
I chose Huntingdon College based on their academic program and I also fell in love with the campus. Coach Bryan Stanley and Coach Jasmyne Miller are looking forward to big things from the freshman class and for making Huntingdon Lacrosse one of the top teams in the USA South Conference. Both Coach Stanley and Coach Miller’s vision for the team is very similar to what I was looking for in a team and in coaches. My overnight with the girls and spending the day with them before and during their game made me feel right at home.
What are your first memories of the sport?
My first memories of lacrosse are going to watch my older brother, Tommy, play high school and travel lacrosse and having him teach me how to catch and throw. He always helped me outside of practice and was always one of my biggest supporters watching me play!
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?
The recruiting process shocked me by how fast coaches want you to visit and commit. Anyone looking to play at the collegiate level should make sure that you love the school before the team. Always overnight with the girls on the team and get to know them away from the coaches. There is always a spot for you at the right school at the collegiate level. Always work hard, believe in yourself and never settle!
Who would you like to thank for helping you get here?
I would like to thank my parents, Thomas and Jennifer Coppini, and my brother, Tommy Coppini. My first High School Lacrosse Coach Mary Ann (Polidori) Wheeler at Cardinal Newman High School. My Travel Coaches Kristina Kolshak (WLC & ACES) and Brian Cook(SOFLA). The President’s Cup coaches Alyssa Shaver, Deana Radcliffe and Jason Stanyer. My High School Coaches Travis Abel, Andrew Branch, and Tracey Cloth at Palm Beach Central High School.
