What’s up everyone? Well the weather has been great all week here in San Jose it’s eighty degrees and not a cloud in the sky. I have been spending a lot of time by the pool this week. Anyone see the MD vs Virginia lacrosse game that went into seven OT’s!? That was crazy!

Salisbury had their streak ended the other day by Gettysburg 11-10. That’s the first loss since the 2006 title game. I’m sure coach Berkman is getting the team ready for what is becoming quite the rivalry game against Stevenson who is now the #1 team in the country. I’m confident the boys will battle back this weekend and reclaim that #1 spot and make it to Foxborough in May.

Well are double-header weekend went pretty good. We lost on Saturday and won on Sunday. Going into the Double-header weekend we figured we needed to win one game to have a chance for a playoff spot. We were beating the Portland LumberJax by six goals last Saturday, and then after a couple of stealth penalties the LumberJax scored seven of the last eight goals to win the game. This changed the teams mindset going into Portland the next day.

On Sunday we went into Portland with our backs against the wall, if we lose, the playoffs are out of reach, but if we win we still are alive in the playoff hunt. We now sit a half of a game behind our western rival the Minnesota Swarm. We play the Minnesota Swarm this Friday for the number four spot in the west and a playoff spot. It will be quite the game to watch because whatever team loses drops a spot and gets further behind in the playoff race. The top four teams from each the western and eastern conference gets a playoff spot.

bio-photoTo start off this first blog I would like to tell you a little bit about myself.  I played defense for the University of Maryland from ’03 to ’07 and my major was mechanical engineering.  Yes… mechanical engineering… some people thought I was crazy for picking that as my major, but it was well worth it. My thoughts were if you are going to get a scholarship for school, or have the opportunity to make it to college, you might as well get the most out of the education. Although I had to put a little more time into my schoolwork than others, I really learned how to balance lacrosse, social life, and academics. It may seem like a tough task balancing all three, but it’s really not that bad and the experience is well worth it.

Ok, Ok enough with the boring stuff.  Lets see…currently I am on my way up to Vermont to go snowboarding with my bro, sis, and mom. I left work around 1 today (which was a good thing because Maryland traffic is awful) and drove home to NJ to pick them up.

O yea forgot to mention I have a full time job for a mechanical contracting company in Rockville, MD and I have my own little lacrosse company called Performance Lacrosse Training. In addition, I play in the MLL for the Boston Cannons. I guess you can literally say I’m always running around. Some people tell me I’m a workaholic but I truly enjoy what I do and every hour of work that I put in.
