If I could earn a living doing what I love most, that would be growing the game of lacrosse around the world. Lacrosse is and has been one of the underrated sports in the world, and it’s growth internationally has been increasing, but I would love to see the sport grow to the point of becoming recognized in the Olympics.
Making a living growing the game of lacrosse, for me, would mean moving to the Philippines to help the Philippine Lacrosse Association grow the sport in the country where my parents came from. Growing the sport would include running free clinics for those interested in learning the game, donating gear to the PLA so that teams, clubs, and other organizations in the Philippines could be created, coaching college and high school teams so that we could build a team suitable for the next World Games in 2018 while also helping kids learn a love and respect for the game. Spreading awareness for lacrosse in the Philippines while also making a living would truly be an honor for me and I can see myself doing this in the near future.
