Character

Massie is a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He has spent time as a camp clinician for free Army lacrosse clinics for local youth. He also serves as a Section Leader, Academic Officer and Squad Leader within the Corps of Cadets as well as a Close Quarters Combat Training Sergeant, responsible for training over 2,000 cadets combat moves.

Community

He has spent time as a Congressional Intern for Representative Paul Gillmor from the 5th District of Ohio, where he was responsible for research, Capitol Tours and dealing with constituent concerns. Massie interned in a Microbiology Research Laboratory at Stony Brook University for three years, helping to develop a new kit which aids in the administering of drugs through an epidural without harming a patient’s spinal cord. He was also a mate on a charter fishing boat for three years that fished the Long Island Sound.

Competition

As a Second-Team Patriot League All-Conference defenseman in 2007, Massie started all 15 games for the Black Knights during the season. He was ranked in the top-10 on the team in ground balls and was a big reason why Army finished 10th in the country in scoring defense, only allowing 7.8 goals per game in 2007. He was named the team’s most improved player for the 2007 season.
