Captain's Letter

Dear Friends of Fairfield Men’s Rowing,

Thank you so much for all that you have given and continue to give to the Fairfield Men’s Rowing team.

I chose to come to Fairfield because it was the only place I truly felt I could call home. I believed that receiving an education rooted in Jesuit Catholic values would help me succeed in life, and that Fairfield would offer me an opportunity to explore different academic backgrounds through the core curriculum.  I am thankful for all of the opportunities that Fairfield and donors have provided me. On this STAGiving Day, March 20, I plan to participate and give back in honor of my own experiences as a Stag and to ensure that future student-athletes have access to the same, or even better, opportunities than I have. You’re invited to join the celebration and make a gift in honor of your own Fairfield experience. 

Because of my time at Fairfield, I have experienced so many unforgettable adventures that make me proud to be a Stag. I give back in honor of my most memorable Fairfield experience to date which was racing in the JV 4+ to qualify for the Grand Final at the Dad Vail Regatta last spring. The race was the most exhilarating experience of my life. I could hear the crowd cheering as we raced neck-and-neck with the boat in the lane next to us with about 200 meters left to reach the finish line. The sheer drive our crew had in that moment is something I will never forget. Thank you to the alumni, parents, and friends who contributed to make this opportunity possible.

Through my four years here, I have witnessed the significant impact that donors have made on my athletic career. Thank you to everyone who has given to Fairfield Rowing in the past and those who continue to give. We have grown exponentially since my freshman year and with your continued support and help, we can achieve even more success in the future!

Donors strengthen Fairfield’s Athletics programs, and we cannot thank you enough for that. I hope you’ll continue your support on STAGiving Day by making a gift in honor of a coach, student-athlete, or program that made a difference to you, a family member, or a neighbor. And new this year, if you make a gift of at least $75, you can opt in to receive an exclusive pair of Stag socks. See how your support will make a difference by visiting

Thank you for contributing to the success of Fairfield Rowing!

Go Stags,
