Zach Reilly’s junior season was cut short when the goaltender suffered a broken collarbone injury in Yorktown’s sixth game of the 2012 campaign, a loss at Smithtown West in a battle of New York state powers.
But Reilly managed to return to action late in the season and now is back at full force for 2013.
The 5-foot-11, 170-pound Reilly verbally committed to Division III power SUNY Oneonta, becoming Yorktown’s sixth senior college commit. You can check out the complete list in LaxLessons.com’s “Updated tristate recruiting commitment rundown for the classes of 2013, ’14 and ’15.”
Reilly, who is a righty with strong communication skills and a high lacrosse IQ, has been playing the game since third grade.
