As far as varsity schedules go, few rival that of Landon High School’s when it comes to strength.
The Maryland power, located in Bethesda, is challenged game in, and game out, both inside and outside the Interstate Athletic Conference. (Landon won its 28th IAC title last season.)
It has served the Bears well and proved to be a perfect preparation for taking their skills to the next level.
Case in point, junior attackman Sean O’Brien, who has verbally committed to Bucknell.
The 5-foot-9, 160-pound right-hander is a dodger with good quickness and finishing abilities.
What were the main factors in your decision?
There were two main factors in making my final decision which were academics and a high level of lacrosse.
As soon as I stepped foot off Bucknell’s campus on my first visit as a sophomore, I felt a great mix within the players on the team between tremendous academics and great Division I lacrosse.
Over the past few years, Bucknell has consistently been ranked in the Top 20 and are playing at a very high level of lacrosse. I also found a great deal of commitment and dedication in the coaching staff of (Bucknell Head) Coach (Frank) Fedorjaka, (Assistant) Coach (Joe) Conner and (Assistant) Coach (Nick) Marks.
What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
I strongly considered and visited Georgetown, Penn, Naval Academy, Michigan and Dartmouth.
What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
I feel I have a strong sense of awareness with the ball in my stick and the ability to know where all my teammates are along with my stick skills and finishing abilities. I describe my style of play as a quick, dodger who can finish well inside and outside.
How did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports have you played?
I first got introduced to lacrosse early on at Landon back in third grade after watching some of the 2004-2005 Landon varsity classics vs. Georgetown Prep. I started playing competitively in fourth grade.
How does Landon’s 2013 varsity schedule look? What games are you looking for to the most?
Landon’s 2013 varsity schedule is as tough as they get around high-school lacrosse year in and year out consisting of many out of conference games including MIAA opponents and a competitive IAC conference.
The games I am most looking forward to are: Penn Charter at Towson Stadium, Culver Military Academy at Landon, Georgetown Prep at Landon and Gilman at Landon.
What travel team did you play on and what were some of the big showcase events you participated in last summer?
I played for BlackWolf 2014 under Coach Joe Trigiani last summer.
I played in Top 205, the Maryland Top 44 Freestate Games, UPLAX, Baltimore Summer Kickoff and the Brine Shootout with Landon.
