I’ve been very fortunate thus far, to have had success whenever people have taken chances on me. Though I’ve been kind of low key for a few years, I think the timing is perfect for this partnership as I work my way back into the lacrosse world’s public eye, both on and off the field. In everything I do, I like to align myself with good people. Success is always dependent upon the people that surround us, and 1 Lacrosse is a company built around good people.”
