30-second timeout with Evan Riss, Oakland Mills boys lacrosse freshman

Having scored three or more goals in five games this season, the freshman – teamed with senior Wyatt Neely – makes up the majority of his team’s offensive attack.

With the holiday break giving some teams a quick break, Riss took some time to answer a few questions about his interests off the field.
