To call Nick a quarterback is to not make a big stretch of a sport analogy, as he was the quarterback last year at Carthage High School as well as their point guard on the basketball team. We are already seeing the results of all of this experience. Nick thrives on the role of attacking the opposition and seeing the motions of his teammates. His stick skills with both hands are fundamentally sound, proving the value of the coaching he received growing up. Nick has made such a strong impression that he is pushing for a starting spot on the attack, which would make him the first to do this since Andrew Feinberg in 2008…Secondary School Background: A graduate of Carthage High School, where he lettered in lacrosse (4), basketball (4) and football (2)… Lacrosse: Four- year starter, Team Captain (2011), USCLA Academic All-American (2011), Frontier League All-Star (2009, 2010 and 2011), First Team All-Northern NY (2009, 2010 and 2011), All-Northern NY MVP (2010), 2nd Team All Central NY (2010), Central Empire State Games team (2010), Upstate, NY Under Armour team (2010), Syracuse Adidas National Lacrosse Classic team (2010), Frontier League scoring leader (2010 and 2011), Set school single game assist record with 12 (2011), Finished career with 372 points (147g/225a), Frontier League Champions (2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 with 48-0 league record), NY State Class B Runner-ups (2008)… Football: Team Captain (2010), League All-Star QB (2010), Central NY Chapter of National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame Scholar Athlete (2010)… Basketball: Team Captain (2009/10 and 2010/11), Frontier League All-Star (2009/10 and 2010/11), 2nd Team All Northern NY (2010/11), Set school record with 154 three point field goals (career), Frontier League Champions (2010/11).
