"I started the Evergreen Lacrosse Club as a reflection of my personal experience with lacrosse - I started playing my sophomore year of high school and was able to find success early because I had amazing coaches, teammates and environment that pushed me to be the best that I could be. If I was able to pick up the sport in that small window, there is no doubt in my mind that if we are able to provide an unique environment for our athletes, we can help them get to where they want to be and accomplish their goals"
