Connor is a well-rounded student-athlete who has played sports since age 4. He has played Lacrosse since age 7, playing attack early on and switching to defense in high school. He was captain and defensive player of the year in his senior year. He developed an interest in robotics early on in middle school which continued on through high school. His team made it to state and/or world’s competition during his four years. He is interested in military service and in becoming a biomedical engineer to design and manufacture artificial organs and limbs. This year he used a 3D printing device to make a prototype of the first medical design he hopes will improve patients lives. Connor is 17 and is applying for a PGY year before attending college to mature further physically. He hopes to play college Lacrosse at a D1 level.
