Brian Corrigan has been playing lacrosse since the third grade.

During that time, he’s developed into a Division I recruit.

But the junior goaltender from Westhampton Beach High School thinks he has not yet reached his full potential.

That’s good news for Marist College and its first-year coach Keegan Wilkinson.

The Red Foxes are the college program that Corrigan, a quick-handed lefty, will be joining after two more varsity seasons for the Hurricanes.

Let’s find out more from the player who could be Marist’s goaltender of the future in this Q&A with Brian on his commitment:

What were the main factors in your decision?
My main priority was to get a good education first and lacrosse second. Marist has a great academic program and the coaches are top notch. The students and players on campus were all welcoming when I went for my visit and made my decision a lot easier.

What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
Brown, Hofstra, Lehigh, Lafayette, Bucknell and Vermont. I only visited Hofstra and Marist, but after visiting Marist, I felt like it was the right fit.

What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
I have quick hands and like to direct my defense and take control of the game. I still have a lot of stuff to work on but I have two years before college to work on the things I need to work on.

What areas of your game do you think you need to improve on?
I need to work on my positioning in the cage. Sometimes I’m not in the position I need to be in and it reflects in giving up a goal. Little things that I can always improve on as a goalie are clearing and directing my defense what to do.

When did you first realize you had the potential to play at the college level?
I was told that ever since a young age that lacrosse can take me places but I never really knew about Division I until after my sophomore season. It wasn’t until after Top 205 (after my sophomore season) that I got my first Division I letter.

What were some of the big summer showcase events you’ve competed in the last couple of years and how did you do at them?
Top 205 was by far the most important summer showcase I played in. I made the all-star game and that really helped me with getting the high Division I looks. Half the kids that played in the game were already committed to Division I schools, so just playing with them and being in the same category as them was a confidence booster.

Team Westhampton also helped me get some more looks when we played in tournaments in Lehigh and Brown and it helped us with team chemistry for this upcoming season. Hofstra Blue and Gold Tournament this past Fall was the last tournament I played in and I did fairly well helping me out with some interest from other schools and playing with some top notch kids.
