You were a part of a lot of winning during your tenure at Loyola, what were the Championships that you won?

  • 2012 NCAA Division I National Champions
  • 2012 E.C.A.C. Conference Champions
  • 2014 Patriot League Conference Champions

What was it like to win a National Championship?

  • It was incredible how we out-willed teams throughout the season, and made the incredible feat of beating Denver 3 times during the season. I was in awe during the entire Final Four weekend, especially during warmups, looking up in the stands and seeing fans and little kids cheering for your team. I was that kid in the stands years ago, so it’s an amazing feeling.

You work at Loyola University now, what do you do there as an employee?

  • I am the Assistant Director of Athletic Development. I help with the fundraising and increase alumni engagement.

Where do you live now?

  • I live in Fed Hill now, with my brother K.R., who is a Roughrider coach for the 2018/2019 team.

How many years were you in the Roughrider program?

  • I played for the Roughriders for 2 years, and coached the Roughriders for 2 years.

What was your best off the field memory as a Roughrider?

  • We had the best tailgates! Our entire team would hang out at the Roughrider tailgate, tell stories, and would get to know each other. A lot of us didn’t go to the same school so it was pretty cool how we became really close as a club team which doesn’t happen often.

What is your favorite pregame meal?

  • Roland Park Bagel – Sausage, egg, and cheese.

What is your favorite pregame song?

  • Yeah! by Usher… Young guys, look it up!

Alumni question from Greg Edmonds: Would you rather go sky diving or bungee jumping?

  • Oh, I would definitely go sky diving! If you’re going to do something like that, you might as well do it big!

Pose the next alumni question for the next ‘Catch Up’ alum.

  • If you had the option of riding in the car to a summer tournament with Coach Lee or Coach Booker, who would it be? Why?

What did you learn from your Roughrider Coaches?

  • Coach Lee taught us how to be an unselfish player, but more importantly he taught us to be more than ‘Lacrosse Players’. He made sure we had the cleanest sideline, we had to pick up trash or water bottles after each game, he had us carry our own gear when walking from the field to our team tent, and he reminded us to be respectful to our teammates, the opponent, the referees, and our parents. Coach Lee made sure that we knew that being a Roughrider meant more than being a ‘lacrosse player’- it always went further than the game.

  • Beating Crabs twice.

What did you learn from your Roughrider Coaches?

As an attackman, you would think my job is to assist and score goals, but Coach Lee taught us that one of the most important skills to have in your arsenal as an attackman was the ability to RIDE! He taught us that being able to ride the opposing team would give us second chances, and more opportunities for our team to be successful!

Which Coach Was the Most Influential to You in the RR Program?

What’d you learn from your Coaches?

What’s Better? Saving a shot off of a midfielder or stuffing an attackman on the crease?

  • I would have to say being able to deny the attackman’s shot on the crease, especially when they trash talk you all game, it’s nice to get one on them!

Alumni Question from Colin Heacock: If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you travel to?

  • Anywhere that has a beach with good waves!

You played for the MLL Pro team, Charlotte Hounds, what was the pro game like?

It was amazing to play in the MLL, and I learned a lot from the guys I played with and against.
