2024 – “Kyle is one heck of a stopper. He effectively blocks the ball with quick reactions and highly anticipatory movements. Why would we be so excited to not put a lacrosse player into any action last year? The decision to redshirt Kyle during his first year on Grounds was done to create more distance between him and Matt Nunes, effectively giving us elite anti-scoring resistance deeper into the future. The most demanding ask of Kyle was to be ready at any moment to compete. He managed his training and his emotional preparation really well. Moving forward, he truly has the opportunity to battle for playing time.” 2023 – “What an impact this first-year made in his collegiate debut.  At The American Boy Project Fall Brawl scrimmages held at Centreville HS, Kyle was an absolute stalwart netminder versus an aggressive Penn State offense.  If not for Kyle’s 16 saves in the first three quarters, the scoreboard would have been quite lopsided in favor of the Nittany Lions.  The more shots Kyle faces, the better he is.  His outlet passes are proving to be effective at kick-starting our transition offense, allowing us to play at the pace we crave.  Kyle has been so impressive that we are hopeful to extend his career here and redshirt him this season.”
