Girl's Committed Players

Girl's Committed Players

We Are Committed To Helping You Find a Home

In 2005 Jamie Munro, then the Head Coach at The University of Denver, started the Mile High All-Stars. For five years Munro developed local players from Colorado and helped them find homes in College Lacrosse. Taking the 2010 summer off from the club circuit, Munro reinvented the Mile High All-Stars into 3d Select. From small begiinings come great things. Since 2010, 3d's reach has expanded from coast to coast with over 100 club teams in 2014. No one has more experience in running top level travel teams nationally than 3d Select. What separates 3d Select from the competition is our dedication to what is best for the players: year round development opportunities, college counseling and guidance, the best teaching curriculum and a prepared staff. We are committed to helping your daughters find the best possible college to fit our player’s athletic profile.

2014 marks a great beginning for 3d. Through hard work and determnation, our Girls Select Program has helped place our first girls into the college ranks.

Q&A

Why did you choose to commit to this college? I chose Boston College because I really liked the campus and the girls that I met on the team. The coaches were also very positive and I felt like they really cared about me as an individual and as a player.

After going through the recruiting process, what are some helpful tips you would give others who are about to go through this process? Make sure that you visit the campus and meet as many of the players as you can. Even though you probably won’t play with those players you will get a feel of the type of players that are in the program. Make sure you choose the college/university because it is the right fit for you as a person. Ask yourself this question, “Would I be happy here even if I couldn’t play lacrosse”.

What do you like best about 3d Lacrosse? That they encourage you to try and take your game to another level by practicing new moves while supporting you to get better even if you make mistakes.

What was your favorite part of 3d training? I liked the 3d philosophy of breaking down each move and learning each part of the move individually. Then applying it later in practice while being encouraged to try something creative.

What is your favorite subject in school? English

Name one thing that you could not live without. My Family

If you had to choose one weapon of choice, what would it be and why? Bow and Arrow. It worked for Katniss

What are some of your pregame rituals and/or game day superstitions? I have to wear white mid-calves and I always put my right one on first. I also wear my hair in a braid with green pre-wrap.

What is your favorite vacation spot? The Bahamas. Because I love the beach and the water is crystal clear.

What is your favorite food? Mangos

Who is your favorite athlete? Usain Bolt

Who is your favorite musician? Beyonce

What is the last book you read? Elenaor and Park

Q&A

Why did you choose to commit to this college? I was extremely impressed with Central Michigan University (CMU), the lacrosse coaches and the athletic staff after going on a campus visit. I really wanted to be part of the school, the team, and the athletic development program. I felt like there would be lots of support along my academic and athletic career there. I chose CMU because I wanted to get in on the ground level. I wanted to help build the women’s lacrosse program as a brand new division 1 sport at CMU starting in the 2015-2016 season. I will get more play time at CMU than other division 1 schools since my teammates will also be incoming freshmen. I am excited to help build this program, and hope to serve as a leader and a contributor on this team for my entire collegiate career.
After going through the recruiting process, what are some helpful tips you would give others who are about to go through this process? I would recommend players attend the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) events where college coaches will be in attendance, and watching for potential recruits. Also make sure you continue to work hard at school too, good grades really help coaches in the recruiting process. The coaches don’t have to worry about you getting accepted into their college, as well as enabling them to add athletic scholarships on top of academic scholarships to offer you the most attractive package possible.
What do you like best about 3d Lacrosse? I like the coaches on my 3d team the best. They really work with you as a player to help you showcase your skills. I really appreciate all the extra time they spent with me after practice to work on the skills that would get me noticed by college coaches.
What was your favorite part of 3d training? I like the intensity of the practices. I feel more prepared for games given how hard we work in practice.
What is your favorite subject in school? My favorite subject is in school is math.
Name one thing that you could not live without. I can’t live without a dog to lighten up the room.
If you had to choose one weapon of choice, what would it be and why? My weapon of choice would be my compound bow. I feel like Katniss Everdeen when I go shooting at the local archery range.
What are some of your pregame rituals and/or game day superstitions? I try to eat pasta before a game to give me energy and I always listen to music.
What is your favorite vacation spot? My favorite vacation spot is Breckenridge, CO since I love the mountains and I love to ski.
What is your favorite food? My favorite food is pasta with meat sauce.
Who is your favorite athlete? Pierre Turgeon is a former Colorado Avalanche hockey player and he is my favorite athlete. Mr. Turgeon was also my ice hockey coach and a true mentor for working hard to making your dreams come true.
Who is your favorite musician? Luke Bryan is my favorite musician.
What is the last book you read? Eleven Seconds: A Story of Tragedy, Courage & Triumph by Travis Roy was the last book that I read. This book is a very inspiring hockey novel that every athlete should read. It shows that there is more to life than just sports.

Q&A

1. Why did you choose to commit to this college? Trinity was exactly what I was looking for, size wize, academic wize, and lacrosse wize. When I took my tour there I could picture myself walking along the paths and through the buildings, and that’s when I realized Trinity was the perfect fit for me.

2. After going through the recruiting process, what are some helpful tips you would give others who are about to go through this process? My one helpful tip is to keep an open mind because your thoughts change. As your recruiting process goes on you learn more and more, changing your opinions. Don’t only look in one direction because there are thousands of possibilities that you need to keep your mind open to that could be your future.

3. What do you like best about 3d Lacrosse? The thing I like most about 3d Lacrosse are the bonds that you build with girls on your team, and the coaches you have, off the field so that playing on the field with your teammates, and being coached by your coaches on the team is a whole lot easier, and a lot more fun.

4. What was your favorite part of 3d training? My favorite part of 3d training were the bus rides. Yes some were as long at 12 hours, but most of my favorite memories from 3d were on those buses. 12 hours in close corners with one bathroom for up to 3 teams to use can create some pretty crazy and funny stories that I will never forget.

5. What is your favorite subject in school? My favorite subject usually is math, but this year I may have changed my mind. I took a very hard math class and started to rethink, because it was not fun to sit there seeing a bunch of signs and numbers on the board and not have any idea what is going on. So this year I would have to say my favorite subject in school was psychology. It’s fun to learn about your brain.

6. Who is your favorite musician? Taylor Swift because she never fails to come out with a song I do not like. I am actually listening to her right now as I answer these questions.

Q&A

Why did you choose to commit to this college? I chose to commit to UC Davis because of its welcoming atmosphere, amazing academic opportunities, and its competitive lacrosse program. I knew right away it was somewhere I wanted to invest the next four years of my life. The coaches and players seem so enthusiastic, determined, and supportive of one another. I can't wait to surround myself with people who are willing to take me to the next level in both academics and lacrosse.

After going through the recruiting process, what are some helpful tips you would give others who are about to go through this process? I would tell others who are trying to get recruited to never give up on a school you want until you have a clear answer from them. Whether you have your heart set on somewhere or have no idea where you want to go, keep pushing yourself to be your best. Also, make sure you select a school where you can picture yourself being happy for four years with or without lacrosse. Remember to work hard to set goals for yourself and never stop striving towards them because who knows what opportunities may be right around the corner.

What do you like best about 3d Lacrosse? What I like best about 3d lacrosse is its sense of community and its amazing resources and opportunities. Everyone within the program is dedicated to helping others as well as themselves to improve on a variety of levels. The 3d coaches have taught me so many valuable things that I can carry through my lacrosse career and beyond. Lastly, the 3d program is extremely organized and structured, which makes practices and games run very smoothly and successfully.

What was your favorite part of 3d training? My favorite part of 3d training is the line drills. They are high intensity, fast-paced, and really help warm up throwing and catching before games and practices.

What is your favorite subject in school?
My favorite subject in school is science. I have always found an interest in life sciences such as biology.

Name one thing that you could not live without. I couldn’t live without the Christmas season.

If you had to choose one super power to have, what would it be and why? I would want to have the power to think of any food and have it appear right then because I love eating food basically all the time.

What are some of your pregame rituals and/or game day superstitions? Before every game I put a slip of paper in my sock with a motivational quote or saying on it that I can think of throughout the game to pump me up. Also, I can never play a game without a headband. Lastly, my high school team has a miniature Buddha that we pass around and rub the belly for good luck on game day.

What is your favorite vacation spot? My favorite vacation spot is Squaw Valley in Lake Tahoe. Our cabin there is my home away from home that has been a part of me since I was four. I spend a ton of time there with family and friends in both the winter and summer. During the winter I snow ski, ice skate, build snowmen, and eat cookies. In summertime we usually go boating, tubing, waterskiing, and hiking.

What is your favorite food? My favorite food is by far bacon. My obsession is somewhat concerning.

Who is your favorite athlete? My favorite athlete is Hunter Pence who is a right fielder for the San Francisco Giants.

Who is your favorite musician? My favorite musician is Jack Johnson.

What is the last book you read? The last book I read was Insurgent by Veronica Roth.

What is your favorite quote? “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” ~ Oscar Wilde

Who has been your biggest influence? My biggest influence has probably been all my teammates over all the years I have played lacrosse. I wouldn't be where I am today without them and their constant support for me and one another. Without lacrosse I would've missed out on meeting some incredible people who I will never forget.

I knew right away it was somewhere I wanted to invest the next four years of my life. The coaches and players seem so enthusiastic, determined, and supportive of one another. I can't wait to surround myself with people who are willing to take me to the next level in both academics and lacrosse.

After going through the recruiting process, what are some helpful tips you would give others who are about to go through this process? I would tell others who are trying to get recruited to never give up on a school you want until you have a clear answer from them. Whether you have your heart set on somewhere or have no idea where you want to go, keep pushing yourself to be your best. Also, make sure you select a school where you can picture yourself being happy for four years with or without lacrosse. Remember to work hard to set goals for yourself and never stop striving towards them because who knows what opportunities may be right around the corner.

What do you like best about 3d Lacrosse? What I like best about 3d lacrosse is its sense of community and its amazing resources and opportunities. Everyone within the program is dedicated to helping others as well as themselves to improve on a variety of levels. The 3d coaches have taught me so many valuable things that I can carry through my lacrosse career and beyond. Lastly, the 3d program is extremely organized and structured, which makes practices and games run very smoothly and successfully.

What was your favorite part of 3d training? My favorite part of 3d training is the line drills. They are high intensity, fast-paced, and really help warm up throwing and catching before games and practices.

What is your favorite subject in school?
My favorite subject in school is science. I have always found an interest in life sciences such as biology.

Name one thing that you could not live without. I couldn’t live without the Christmas season.

If you had to choose one super power to have, what would it be and why? I would want to have the power to think of any food and have it appear right then because I love eating food basically all the time.

What are some of your pregame rituals and/or game day superstitions? Before every game I put a slip of paper in my sock with a motivational quote or saying on it that I can think of throughout the game to pump me up. Also, I can never play a game without a headband. Lastly, my high school team has a miniature Buddha that we pass around and rub the belly for good luck on game day.

What is your favorite vacation spot? My favorite vacation spot is Squaw Valley in Lake Tahoe. Our cabin there is my home away from home that has been a part of me since I was four. I spend a ton of time there with family and friends in both the winter and summer. During the winter I snow ski, ice skate, build snowmen, and eat cookies. In summertime we usually go boating, tubing, waterskiing, and hiking.

What is your favorite food? My favorite food is by far bacon. My obsession is somewhat concerning.

Who is your favorite athlete? My favorite athlete is Hunter Pence who is a right fielder for the San Francisco Giants.

Who is your favorite musician? My favorite musician is Jack Johnson.

What is the last book you read? The last book I read was Insurgent by Veronica Roth.

What is your favorite quote? “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” ~ Oscar Wilde

Who has been your biggest influence? My biggest influence has probably been all my teammates over all the years I have played lacrosse. I wouldn't be where I am today without them and their constant support for me and one another. Without lacrosse I would've missed out on meeting some incredible people who I will never forget.

Q&A

1. Why did you choose to commit to this college?
It was a perfect fit. I loved the coach the first time I met her and the girls were so nice and welcoming. Besides the team, the school is amazing and the people there are always so happy. It is so nice to be in a positive environment where everyone wants you to succeed.

2. After going through the recruiting process, what are some helpful tips you would give others who are about to go through this process?
Be true to yourself. Find the school that is perfect for you whether it be D3 or D1. Do not try to adapt to a school that does not feel right to you, it leads to unhappiness.

3. What do you like best about 3d Lacrosse?
Being from a state that did not have a 3d program, when I trained in New England and Colorado the girls, coaches, and families were all so welcoming and nice. The 3d coaches played an active role in helping me get recruited and were a main reason I am playing at High Point.

4. What was your favorite part of 3d training?
There was always a time where things were serious and we got a lot done. The drills are very interactive and fast paced to create realistic game situations. Not to mention there were times to have fun and rest because balance is a big part of becoming a great team.

5. What is your favorite subject in school?
History

6. Name one thing that you could not live without.
Music

7. If you had to choose one super power to have, what would it be and why?
To shape shift because you could be anyone or anything you want.

8. What are some of your pregame rituals and/or game day superstitions?
I always listen to the same lacrosse motivational speech and listen to my game day playlist. It is very important to get your blood pumping and focus your mind on intensity and having the desire to win.

9. What is your favorite vacation spot?
Harbor Springs, Michigan

10. What is your favorite food?
I do not have one, I love all food

11. Who is your favorite athlete?

12. Who is your favorite musician?
Ed Sheeran

13. What is the last book you read?
The Color Purple

14. What is your favorite quote?
I am a member of a team, and I rely on the team, I defer to it and sacrifice for it, because the team, not the individual, is the ultimate champion. - Mia Hamm

15. Who has been your biggest influence?
My family. I take away something valuable from each person in my family in order to be the best person I can be.

Q&A

1. Why did you choose to commit to this college? Umass Amherst just felt right, when I was a Sophomore I was looking at lists of colleges that would be at our tournaments and I was sending emails out to the ones I was interested in. I saw UMass Amherst and thought to myself “That would be so cool, but I could never go there...” and didn’t send an email but a year later there I was talking to the head coach. The girls on the team and the coaches were so much fun and really nice. I made the decision because I liked a big school, and I liked the idea of playing lacrosse at my state's biggest university.

2. After going through the recruiting process, what are some helpful tips you would give others who are about to go through this process? Some helpful tips I have are, don’t rush or feel like you’re behind everyone else because the process is different for every player and if a college really wants you they will wait for you to make your decision.

3. What do you like best about 3d Lacrosse? The players and coaches. I started playing with many of the same girls on Synergy Lacrosse before 3d Lacrosse and everyone has grown so much and it’s so awesome to see the change in level of play, attitude, and personality throughout the years.

4. What was your favorite part of 3d training? I love the practices, I always learn something new and I feel like they have made my lacrosse skills a lot more creative and interesting.

5. What is your favorite subject in school? Math, even though I’m not very good at it

6. Name one thing that you could not live without. My dog

7. If you had to choose one super power to have, what would it be and why? To fly

8. What are some of your pregame rituals and/or game day superstitions? I drink a lot of water usually 3 Nalgenes and eat a green apple.

9. What is your favorite vacation spot? Alta Ski Mountain, Utah

10. What is your favorite food? Ben & Jerry's: Half Baked Ice Cream

11. Who is your favorite athlete? Tom Brady (obviously)

12. Who is your favorite musician? Earth, Wind & Fire

13. What is the last book you read? The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

14. What is your favorite quote? “You can never tell how good a wave is until you ride it.” -Bruce Brown

15. Who has been your biggest influence? My Family. My Dad coached me throughout my entire youth career. My Mom, although she never played lacrosse she has learned the ropes throughout the years and is always watching game after game. My Siblings, Jake and Kathleen. My brother now plays at Tufts University and my sister now plays at Bentley University. I have grown up watching them fail and succeed and now being able to watch them play at a college level has shown me what it’s like and they never fail to amaze me.

Q&A

1. Why did you choose to commit to this college?
I had never been to North Carolina until I went on my visit; but I loved everything about it, it was beautiful and the campus reminded me a lot of home. I want to be a  writer and Lees McRae has a great humanities program where I can get not only a creative writing  degree but I could also get an education degree to teach english. Since I’m going so far away having a  team that will be like a family to me was very important so that when I get homesick I know I have at  least 20 girls who will be there for me and I honestly have never felt more at home than I did with the  girls at Lees McRae so I knew it was a good fit.

2. After going through the recruiting process, what are some helpful tips you would give others who are about to go through this process?
Well for one, start early; the longer you wait the less likely your top choice will have a spot  for you. Also pick the school based off of what you want to study, yes lax is life but it’s probably not  something you’ll get paid to do. Whether the school is in state or out of state, go visit the school. I  know for me that was really important since I’m going so far away from home it’s not like I can come  home on the weekends to do laundry I really had to love the campus and the team.  

3. What do you like best about 3d Lacrosse?
I love how passionate and hands on all the coaches are. You can really tell that everyone at  3d really wants to see everyone get better and succeed and having good supportive program behind  me gave me the confidence I needed to be successful in my lacrosse career.

4. What was your favorite part of 3d training?
How even though there were a lot of girls there was always a coach/player ready to shoot on  me or warm me up, I loved the individual attention I needed and even though some of the  drills were hard on goalies I know they all made me a better and more knowledgeable goalie. 

5. What is your favorite subject in school?
English, hands down. It’s the only subject I know I can do really well.

6. If you had to choose one super power to have, what would it be and why?
I think I’d want to be able to fly really fast. I’m always late for almost everything so if I could  just fly where I need to be that would be so cool.

7. What are some of your pregame rituals and/or game day superstitions?
 Being a goalie I’m about as superstitious as they come. I have this book I read about a half an hour before warm ups. The book helps me with my mental game. I just read a chapter before  every game so I get in a certain mindset and I also set a goal for myself based off the chapter I read. I also have to listen to the song Brick House by Earth Wind and Fire, and Till I Collapse by  Eminem. I also do meditation and breathing exercises before games, and then when I get in the net I have to hit the posts a certain way; I face the net and hit the right post then the top then the left.  

8. What is your favorite vacation spot?
I haven’t gone on that many vacations but my favorite was to this beach in California called  Stinson beach.

9. What is your favorite food?
I love Chinese food!

10. Who is your favorite athlete?
Stephen Curry, he’s awesome. He works hard and I think he’s great role model plus his kids are  adorable.

12. What is the last book you read?
 The last book I finished was Dante's Inferno but I’m currently reading a book called the  Crown of Midnight. 

13. What is your favorite quote?
​ “Remember, remember, this is now, and now, and now. Live it, feel it, cling to it. I want to  become acutely aware of all I’ve taken for granted.”‐ Sylvia Plath  

14. Who has been your biggest influence?
Honestly probably my little brother, which sounds weird because he’s younger but I really  look up to him. He’s always honest with me and tells me the brutal truth even when I don’t want to  hear it. He works hard at everything he does, whether it’s sports or school he always does his best, he  pushes me to be a better athlete and person, plus I know he will always be there for me not matter  what.

Q&A

 1. Why did you choose to commit to this college?

I chose Hofstra because of the amazing opportunities that I am offered there. The team atmosphere was incredible and every player, coach, and staff member was extremely welcoming. The academics are incredible, and I absolutely love New York. I know that I am going to grow as a player and a person in my time there.

2. After going through the recruiting process, what are some helpful tips you would give others who are about to go through this process?

The best advice I can give is to play the game you love and have fun doing it. Don't stress about who is on the sidelines watching, play for your coaches and teammates, not for an audience. Don't play selfishly, play for the girls next to you, because she is playing for you too. As far as going through the recruiting process, I would say, its never too late. So play hard and have fun every time you step on the field.

3. What do you like best about 3d Lacrosse?

I loved the team atmosphere. Whether we came out with a win or not, we did it together. I loved that 3d allowed me to play competitively on a team with girls that pushed me to rise to the occasion and allowed me to challenge myself.

4. What was your favorite part of 3d training?

I liked that although we were working hard, we were always having fun. I love lacrosse so much, and being able to get better but have so much fun at the same time really built my passion for the game.

5. What is your favorite subject in school?

English

6. Name one thing that you could not live without.

Seedless Cutie clementines

7. If you had to choose one super power to have, what would it be and why?

I would choose to have super speed so that I could run the ball up the field and no one could catch me, and so that I would win every groundball.

8. What are some of your pregame rituals and/or game day superstitions?

I do my hair the same way every game. A ponytail with a single small braid on the left side. And I wear the same Nike tie headband every game.

9. What is your favorite vacation spot?

I love anywhere on the beach

10. What is your favorite food?

Pretty much anything Italian

11. Who is your favorite athlete?

Michael Jordan and Mia Hamm are my favorite overall athletes, but Kara Cannizzaro is my favorite lacrosse player.

12. Who is your favorite musician?

Beyoncé

I chose UCCS because I had a chance to play in their inaugural season and to help build their program. The school was also a good choice academically and financially.

2. After going through the recruiting process, what are some helpful tips you would give others who are about to go through this process?
When you're getting recruited, don't be afraid to ask questions and be proactive. It's better to know unnecessary information than to miss opportunities that you weren't aware of. And always be open-minded. A college you've never heard of could end up being the best fit.

3. What do you like best about 3d Lacrosse?
I loved the 3d coaching. Every coach that I interacted with knew my name and helped me on an individual basis as much as they helped my team.

4. What was your favorite part of 3d training?
I love the small-area games and box focus. My stick skills improved quickly and my lacrosse IQ increased a ton just by being forced to play in a more confined space.

5. What is your favorite subject in school?
My favorite subject in school is biology.

6. Name one thing that you could not live without.
I can't live without my car. I love to travel around the state, see things and do things that are too far away to walk to.

7. If you had to choose one super power to have, what would it be and why?
If I could have any superpower it would be to be able to be in more than one place at once. I am usually really busy, so it'd be nice to be able to do more than one thing at once.

8. What are some of your pregame rituals and/or game day superstitions?
My pre game ritual is a smoothie. I always have some sort of fruit smoothie before I play. It makes me feel like I'll have extra energy through the game and fuels me without feeling full or sick.

9. What is your favorite vacation spot?
My favorite vacation spot is Orlando, FL. I love Disney and Universal Studios.

10. What is your favorite food?
My favorite food is anything Italian. I'm a sucker for carbs.

11. Who is your favorite athlete?
My favorite athlete is Kenneth Faried on the Denver Nuggets. He's one of the most hard-working and passionate professional athletes I've seen, and it pays off for him on the court.

12. Who is your favorite musician?
My favorite musician is Jon Foreman.

13. What is the last book you read?
The last book I read was Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl.

14. What is your favorite quote?
My favorite quote is "Thrive, not just survive."

15. Who has been your biggest influence?
My biggest influence is my dad. He has encouraged me always in anything I've ever done, and he always believes in me even when I don't believe in myself. He shows me every day the type of person I want to be for myself and others.

13. What is the last book you read? I don’t read a lot of books, but I do read a whole bunch of Surfer Magazine.

14. What is your favorite quote? “Don’t let your dreams be dreams.” Jack Johnson

15. Who has been your biggest influence? My biggest influence is, and always will be, my three coaches Jillian Boyd, Kevin Cooper, and Meris Walsh. During the spring of 2013, my sister and I played our last season of boy’s lacrosse where Kevin was our coach. During the season, Kevin skipped many of his MLL lacrosse games to coach us showing his dedication to our team. Kevin has pushed my sister and I far beyond where we thought we could go. Jillian and Meris have taught me that winning isn’t the most important thing in life especially in lacrosse, but its all about having fun and being confident, which can lead to amazing things. This has taught me to rise above the bad things that happen, and keep moving forward. Overall, all three of my coaches have influenced and inspired me to become a better

Q&A

1. Why did you choose to commit to this college? After looking at many colleges I knew that USC was the perfect school for me. Not only does it have good academics, but also an amazing lacrosse program along with a great coaching staff! The USC environment was one I felt very comfortable with, somewhere that my sister and I can for sure get use to!

2. After going through the recruiting process, what are some helpful tips you would give others who are about to go through this process? Be patient with the recruiting process because it does get frustrating at times, but you have to know that its all worth it. Email a lot of colleges that you are interested in, and try to pick schools that you feel most comfortable with, based on academics, surroundings, and athletics.

3. What do you like best about 3d Lacrosse? The best part about 3d Lacrosse is how supportive their coaching staff is, and how big creativity is within 3d lacrosse.

4. What was your favorite part of 3d training? How much creativity is incorporated into our drills, translating into our games and personality as lacrosse players.

5. What is your favorite subject in school? If PE doesn’t count, then my favorite subject would be math.

6. Name one thing that you could not live without. I couldn’t live without my skateboards, surfing, and my twin sister because they have influenced and pushed me to excel in lacrosse.

7. If you had to choose one super power to have, what would it be and why? If I had to choose one super power to have it would be to adapt to the underwater environment, because I would be able to explore the ocean to a greater extent and be able to breathe underwater.

8. What are some of your pregame rituals and/or game day superstitions? I always have to wear a skate shirt under my uniform.

9. What is your favorite vacation spot? My favorite vacation spot is the North Shore of Kauai HI, because I love visiting friends and surfing.

Q&A

1. Why did you choose to commit to this college?  
I chose to commit to the University of Vermont because when I visited I felt very comfortable on the campus, loved the coaching staff, and realized how happy I would be living there. I also believe that UVM has incredible opportunities and that is something I was looking for in a  college. Not to forget the stellar lacrosse.  

2. After going through the recruiting process, what are some helpful tips you would give others  who are about to go through this process?   Always making sure to reach out to coaches before tournaments. It is very important to show them how interested you are in their school. The best advice I can give, however is as my Coach Bill Gleason told me, “be the best athlete on the field.” Every single time you take the  field you never know who is watching, it is crucial to make the best effort.  

3. What do you like best about 3d Lacrosse?   My favorite thing about 3d is the intensity. 3d practices are always about being very focused and I think that this is the reason that their athletes are so successful. It’s all about bringing  the heat!  

4. What was your favorite part of 3d training?  I had the ability to play on the 3d National team summer of 2015. It was an unforgettable experience because being able to collaborate with other 3d players from all around the states was amazing.  

5. What is your favorite subject in school? 

My favorite subject at school is language. I take both spanish and french.  

6. Name one thing that you could not live without.  

I could not live without my lacrosse stick. I play wall ball or shoot when I am stressed, upset,  happy, or bored.  

7. If you had to choose one super power to have, what would it be and why? 

I would most definitely choose teleporting. Mainly because when I’m sitting in class I think  about how cool it would be to snap my fingers and be on the beach in Hawaii.  

8. What are some of your pregame rituals and/or game day superstitions?  

My pregame ritual is turning up music in the locker room really really loud with my  teammates, so that we can dance and sing at the top of our lungs. My game day superstitions  are always drinking 1 cool blue gatorade and wearing the same camo shirt during warm ups.  Sounds strange but it works for me! 

9. What is your favorite vacation spot? 

My favorite place to vacation spot is Sayulita, Mexico. My uncle, aunt, and cousins live there,  so it is a blessing to see them, enjoy the beach, and the warm sunshine.  

10. What is your favorite food?  

Mexican food. I could eat tacos or burritos for every single meal. Especially when it is  homemade! 

11. Who is your favorite athlete? 

Paul Rabil is my favorite athlete. He is such an inspiration to all lacrosse players around the  world to be the best athlete that they can be regardless of traditional sport “standards”.  

12. Who is your favorite musician?  

This is very hard question for me, it really depends on my mood. Before games I often listen to 
Drake, Kanye West, or Jay Z. Whenever I am with my friends or hanging out I love to listen to  Flume.  

13. What is the last book you read? 

The last book I read was “A long way gone” by Ishmael Beah. It is a memoir about his previous  life living in poverty of Africa.  

14. What is your favorite quote?  

My favorite quote is, “Skill has no finish line”. This was said by Paul Rabil. No matter how hard  you work, there is always something you can do better. 

15. Who has been your biggest influence? 

My biggest influence has been my older brother, Eli Rajotte. If it weren’t for him I wouldn’t  have started to play lacrosse. I was in the second grade when I started to watch him play. I  wanted to be as determined as he was. This is why I started to play boys lacrosse the following  year. Always driving for the same command as he has on the field. He is truly been the biggest  reason I have worked so hard. Eli has taught me to apply lacrosse to life and never quit until  the final whistle. I am so lucky to have him and cannot wait to watch him play next year at  OWU.

This helps to get a feel for the school and the coaching philosophy.

4. What was your favorite part of 3d training?
