TJ Senior Lake Tahoe | Reno NV Senior Photographer | Kristi Gayton Photography
TJ is such an impressive young man! At just 16 years old he was the first lacrosse player from Northern Nevada recruited to play NCAA D1 Lacrosse by the University of Denver! TJ's Mom remembers the recruitment process as "long and hard, but fun." They took 38 plane rides in an effort to get TJ a Division 1 commitment traveling to Florida, New York, Princeton, Conneticut, Boston, Philadelphia, and Maryland. TJ's Mom writes "We visited 5 ivy league schools before TJ met Coach Tierney. He ran and scored to win an All-Star game (goalies don't normally do that). When Coach put him in the cage after the game and had D1 college players shooting on him (he was 15 at the time) and it was hard for them to score- I knew his dreams had come true!" At University of Denver he will be taking a 5 year Masters Program, and he is interested in their drone program. I just want him to meet some girls ;)!
Last year USLacrosse named TJ Northern Nevada's first Lacrosse All American and he is ranked 2nd in his class of 327 with a 5.0 GPA! Absolutely Incredible TJ... Happy Senior Year!
