If he hadn’t already showed the country just how dangerous of a player he is, Kelly solidified the opinions by putting up 3.5 points a game against the nation’s very best at the Under
Armour Underclass Games. Extraordinarily skilled, the future Tar Heel is a field general for CHC and can exploit opposing defenses in a variety of ways.

Why did you choose North Carolina?
I chose North Carolina for the rigorous academic opportunities as well as the support needed to succeed in an extremely difficult academic setting. I also chose UNC because
of the location relative to Baltimore – it is only about five and a half hours south of Baltimore.

This distance is perfect for my parents and me because they still have the opportunity to visit me but it also allows me freedom to get away if needed.

Who was your favorite lacrosse player growing up and why?
I always liked watching Mikey Powell. He was so interesting to me because he was so quick and looked really athletic. I always loved how e broke down defenders and score flashy goals.

What are your thoughts on early recruiting?
Early recruiting is negative, in my opinion.
I think it has the opportunity to do a lot more negative damage rather than positive.

If you could play any team in the country that’s not on your 2015 schedule, who would it be and why?
I would love to play against Haverford in a real game and not just a scrimmage. I have some friends on Haverford and they are always unbelievable so I think it would be a lot of fun.

What’s your best lacrosse memory thus far?
Winning the 8th grade MYLA championship was my best lacrosse memory. The teams
were divided up into sections all throughout Maryland. Our team, Lutherville (comprised of mostly Loyola and Calvert Hall kids) played MLC (comprised of mostly Gilman and BL Kids) and we won by Ryan Conrad scoring to win it all. Middle school lacrosse was so pride- filled and there was no pressure in playing, that’s why that was my best memory.
