During most of Henry Narlee’s playing days at Massachusetts power Duxbury, the possibility of playing lacrosse at Boston University did not exist for the simple reason that BU didn’t decide to launch a program until this year.
But now that it has, the versatile midfielder, who is currently a senior at Avon Old Farms (Conn.), has decided to be a part of it.
The 5-foot-10, 180-pound righty has verbally committed to coach Ryan Polley’s Terriers’ program.
Narlee, who started playing lacrosse in the fifth grade, is also a football standout.
Now, here’s a Q&A with Henry on his commitment.
What were the main factors in your decision?
The size of the school, the location, the academics and the coaches were all very important to me.
What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
I considered Brown, Dartmouth, Michigan, Colgate and Holy Cross.
What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
My strengths are that I’m diverse. A lot of midfielders try to specialize on a certain part of their game. I tried to stay away from that.
How did you get introduced to lacrosse and do you play any other sports?
I got introduced through my friends. I also play football.
Who have been some of the biggest influences on you during your development as a player?
Definitely my youth coach, Mike Connelly. I owe a lot to him in shaping me as the person and player I am today.
What travel team did you play on and what were some of the big showcase events you participated in this past summer?
I played for Laxachusetts and I played in King of the Hill, NE Storm and the Brine Shootout.
