Growing up, New Canaan athletics gave me the opportunity to meet people in my grade, outside of my immediate friends from school. Playing sports at New Canaan High School prepared me extremely well to perform at the next level. Serving as a captain on the lacrosse and ice hockey team helped me develop leadership skills and practical experience, making me a much better player and leader in college. Playing multiple sports throughout high school helped make me a well-rounded athlete with a good game sense, which helped in transitioning to the college level. I was very fortunate to have unbelievable facilities at NCHS, and regularly available space, which significantly improved my ability to train when back home in New Canaan. I am very grateful that I got to put on the red and black, learn from such wonderful coaches, and take the field/ice with such great players. Lastly, as always, Beat Darien!
