Jack Concannon’s journey to the world of Division I lacrosse started at age 4 when he first started playing the sport.

That early start helped the St. Anthony’s (N.Y.) junior goaltender develop exceptional stick skills and quick hands.

When he developed athleticism and size to go with those skills — he’s now 6-foot-2 — he became a recruiting target of many top-notched collegiate programs impressed by the abilities you can see by checking out Concannon’s highlight reel.

After weighing his options, Concannon has decided to stay close to home by playing at Hofstra.

Now, here’s a Q&A with Jack on his commitment.recruiting_update
