As we get set for the official start of varsity practices, we’ve headed east, west, north and south and plenty of points in between to get the thoughts of players from throughout the Hudson Valley/Long Island/Connecticut region in a first-of-its-kind feature, “Player’s perspective.”
And we’re grateful to all the players for their amazing insights. As I said to a coach at one of the region’s top programs the other day, the quality of their analysis has been pretty impressive to say the least.
We now venture to Katonah in Northern Westchester, home of the Harvey Cavaliers of the Hudson Valley Athletic League.
St. Lawrence University-bound Jamie Lunt, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound defenseman who transferred to Harvey from Pelham, shares his outlook.
What have you been doing to get ready for the season?
In the offseason, I’ve been hitting the weight room hard and I picked up basketball to stay in shape during the winter.
Can you talk about some of the key players you lost from last year and how you think you will be able to replace them?
The biggest loss we had was Pete Sorenson. He anchored our offense for the past three years, but we have a lot of young players who will be looking to fill his role.
How does your schedule look and which ones are you looking forward to most?
We have a solid schedule this season, and I think it will be a great one. The two games I am looking forward to the most are Chase Collegiate, because they have won the league for the past two years, and KLHT, because some of our former players transferred there and we will be playing against them.
What players on your team do you think will surprise some people this season?
I think sophomore Brandon Hickey andjJunior Malik Garvin will be the key parts of our offense and will turn a lot of heads this year.
What do you think the strength of your team will be this year?
Our defense will be our strength because myself, Jake Warsaw, Greg Hennings and our goalie, Shane Handler, are all seniors and at least three-year varsity starters.
