Mahopac’s John Brandofino, one of the region’s top attackmen, has given a verbal commitment to attend Division II national power New York Institute of Technology.
Here’s a Q&A with John on his decision:
When did you finalize decision?
I finalized my decision after seeing the school and meeting Coach (Justin) Arini (NYIT’s recruiting coordinator and offensive coach) and Coach (Bill) Dunn (NYIT’s associate head coach) on Friday after we arrived home.
What were the main factors in deciding on NYIT?
I chose NYIT because it is a really nice campus with a good business school and lacrosse is the main sport on campus.
What were your thoughts when you visited and met with the coaches?
I really liked the coaches because they spent time explaining what was expected of me and their way of playing which fits my style.
What areas of your game do you think you need to improve on and what will you be doing this fall and winter training-wise in preparation for next season?
I am working on my strength and size this winter training at Evolution every day both cardio weights and flexibility.
