|High School:||Ward Melville|
With every new crop of freshmen that arrives at Brown, there are always a few unexpected surprises. We anticipated Jimmy bringing his strong shot and speed to College Hill, but his defensive prowess has been a pleasant addition to our program. Despite taking on older and more experienced midfielders in practice, Jimmy proved to all of us that he has the physical tools and the mental attitude and anticipation to be a tough, rugged defensive midfielder. Combining all of his attributes together means Jimmy is on track to earn meaningful minutes this Spring if he continues to progress with his scheme comprehension...Secondary School Background - Choate (PG Year) - Lacrosse: Leading scorer/points leader in 2013 with 27 goals 9 assists…Founder's League champions (first time in 20 years)…First Team All-Western New England selection…New England West All-Star Game selection…Winner of Choate's Robert Berry Excellence in Lacrosse award…Football: Played nose guard, linebacker and fullback on the varsity football team…Winner of the Jim Fowler Hustle and Dedication Award…Team went 8-1…Ward Melville High School - Lacrosse: Senior captain… two-year varsity starter…Unsung Hero Award…Football: As a junior, running back and safety.
