I want to help build the future of the team and motivate the underclassmen to get better and love the sport.

What is your daily routine? 

During the season, my daily routine consists of going to school, then practice, then coming home to lift, and if I feel like I need extra work on my shot, I go in the backyard to shoot or go to a local field.

What is your biggest accomplishment as a lacrosse player? 

Hitting 100 career points and having 10 points against Panther Creek in one game this year.

What plans do you have after high school? 

I’m going to Hampden Sydney to play lacrosse. They’re currently ranked 16th in Division 3. I’m also doing ROTC there. I will come out of college as a Lieutenant in the army.

What is your favorite memory of being on the team? 

I don’t have one favorite memory. My favorite part of playing here is that I get to play with two of my closest friends that I grew up playing lacrosse with, Alex Wagner (‘23) and Harrison Wahl (‘23), as well as being able to play on a team with my younger brother Luke Bell (‘25).

 What advice would you give to your teammates and the Green Hope community in general?

Always enjoy the little things. It goes by fast. Just take it all in because you’ll be looking back on these 4 years for the rest of your life.
