There was plenty of drama in this year’s fourth annual Long Island Showcase, with both the Rising Senior and Rising Junior games being decided by one goal.
Needless to say, that performance led to increased recruiting interest in the Westhampton midfielder, who committed to Marist this week.
Here’s a Q&A with Casey on his commitment:
What were the main factors in your decision?
The biggest decision towards picking the right school for me was a good education but at the same time playing on a lacrosse team that is going to compete with the best. Also Marist has a beautiful campus right on the Hudson River and it made it that much easier for my decision.
What other schools were you considering?
I was considering Air Force, Tampa, Marquette and Cortland.
What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
My strengths as a player is coming off the dodge quick and shooting the ball. I like to play a face pace of play.
How many schools were you in contact with after the Long Island Showcase last month?
I was in contact with six schools after the Long Island Showcase.
Who have been some of the biggest influences on you during your development as a player?
My family played a huge role in my development as a player. They would always encourage me to do that much better. Also my father is a role model to me. He put the stick in my hand as soon as I could walk.
