It’s been an active week for Hewlett lacrosse.
Last week, we told you Kevin Fuchs, the junior midfielder who has decided to follow former Hewlett star Max Seibald’s path to Cornell.
Now we have news of another Bulldogs commitment.
The 5-foot-9, 165-pound Isaacs is a good position goaltender who is effective at starting transition opportunities after making saves.
Now, here’s a Q&A with Justin on his commitment.
What were the main factors in your decision?
When visiting other schools, I felt that Ithaca offered me the best opportunity to succeed in both lacrosse and academics. It was the perfect size and a beautiful school. I also feel that i can come in and really help this team led by a great coach Jeff Long, who has a history of coaching great goalies.
What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
Boston University, Dartmouth University, Brown University, Rochester Institute of Technology, Tufts and Swarthmore
What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
I feel that I have great position and that I am a good communicator. I believe I play an aggressive but controlled game, making big saves and then converting in clearing is very important in my game.
Who have been some of the biggest influences on you during your development as a player?
My father, Glenn Isaacs, my goalie coach Jim Dellarocca, and my high school coach, Chris Passuello, have really taught me almost everything I know. Through all the discipline, skill, leadership, and other qualities that I have learned from them have made me become ready to play at the next level.
What travel team did you play on this past summer and what were some of the showcase events you competed in over the summer?
I played for the Turf Island Oilers. I participated in Top 205, Jake Reed Nike Bluechip, LT300 at Brown and ECLC at Dartmouth.
