Q: What was the trip like?

A: Our main thing was to spread lacrosse in Israel. It’s not a well-known sport there. We had about four games mapped out, but we spent a lot of time going to schools and talking with kids from kindergarten to our age. We taught lacrosse and gave clinics.

 

Q: Your lasting memory?

A: We went to the Gaza Strip and I connected with one girl who was my age. Her dream in life was to come to the U.S. and find her dad. Lacrosse might help her do that.

 

Q: That had to be a pretty eye-opening moment.

A: It was. Before I got there, I was just thinking that lacrosse was my primary reason for going. After I talked to her and heard how difficult her life is and that her dreams are something I live day-to-day, it showed my that I wasn’t just there for lacrosse. It was bigger than that.

 

Q: Will you be playing lacrosse for Israel in the future?

A: There will be some opportunities coming over the next two years. I don’t know how they’re going to choose the players. It would be incredible if I got to play with the national team.
