|High School:||Deerfield Academy|
As most freshmen will tell you, there is a substantial amount of time and energy required in order to adjust to the speed of the college game. Will has made the transition, due in large part to the high level of lacrosse he experienced at Deerfield and his own personal commitment to being a contributor. As a big, strong athlete, Will has formidable defensive position and holds that keep his match-ups from finding their comfort zone around the crease. His comprehension of the slide packages is improving, as well as the man down schemes. What Will needs is experience and to lose the wonderful, caring, good guy persona that defines him in all phases of life when he steps on the lacrosse practice and game field. We are excited to witness Will's growth and maturation as a collegiate defenseman…Secondary School Background: A graduate of Deerfield Academy, where he lettered in lacrosse (3), squash (3) and football (2)…2011- captained an undefeated lacrosse team and New England champion, two-year starter and co-New England Champion his sophomore year, Senior East-West New England All-Star game, Played in the Under Armour Underclassmen Game for New England… Squash: 3 year letter winner, Ranked 3rd in New England at his position as a sophomore.
