TH: What are you looking forward to the most during your collegiate career?
GG: I am most looking forward to bonding with my teammates and making a statement in the west coast for lacrosse by becoming the first D-I Pac-12 school for lacrosse.

TH: Have you been to Utah before?
GG: I have been a few times before and when I visited I was very impressed and I felt at home. I am from Denver so it is very similar while still leaving the state, which is what I wanted. My parents also lived in Salt Lake when they first got married so I was ecstatic when Utah popped up on my radar.

TH: What awards/team awards have you earned while in High School both academically and athletically?
GG: I was all conference my sophomore and junior year for varsity lacrosse. My sophomore year we came in second place in the state tournament and then won the state championship my Junior year. I was also part of National Honors Society my Freshman and Junior year for academic excellence.

Goodyear played club lacrosse with 3d Colorado, Doco and Evolve. To top it off, Goodyear is most excited to be a Utah Ute and major in exercise science or physical therapy.

I am incredibly blessed to officially have a home for the next 4 years. I cannot wait to see where this school will take me @UtahLacrosse
