When and how did you start playing lacrosse?
I started in 7th grade because my brother wanted to and I wasn’t getting any better at baseball.
What is your spirit animal? (Players are given a spirit animal by upperclassmen when they first join the team)
Hahaha, I am Kevin from UP. It is probably because I have a very quirky personality on the field and maybe I am little lanky. Also, I do really enjoy animated movies and plan to never grow up.
What are your plans after graduation?
Visiting my brother in Rome and then roaming in Europe for a few weeks. Then it is off to the real world as a manufacturing engineer at Emerson.
Most memorable moment as a Gopher?
Meeting #18 freshman year fall ball when I said, “Hey, I’m Luke” and he replied, “Hey, I’m Matt.” I haven’t called him Matt since.
Which of your current or former teammates had the greatest impact on you?
Every one of my former captains have helped me out. They all have taught me about leadership and how to be a good teammate. Hopefully, I have passed some of that on to the younger Gophers.
Do you have any superstitions? Pregame rituals?
Attempt to get pissed off.
What has been your favorite class you have taken at Minnesota?
What is one piece of advice you have for incoming freshmen?
Just keep trying new things, and don’t underestimate your talent or potential impact on the world.
Do you have any hidden talents?
I learned how to whistle in college.
Favorite sport other than lacrosse?
Nick Fix, kids good at everything.
