Lehigh Valley Team: Assistant coach, 2030

What Does HEADstrong Mean To You: Headstrong is much more than another club lacrosse team. It is a Foundation that fights for a great cause. The program does a great job of raising the boys into men over the years. I always enjoyed playing for the program because I knew I was playing for somebody else and raising awareness for them. HEADstrong, to me, is all about giving back and caring for one and other.
