We’ll be spotlighting two Lafayette-bound Class of 2014 standouts – one from New York (Chaminade attackman James Roberts) and one from New Jersey (Delbarton midfielder Will McCarthy).
The 6-foot-3, 185-pound McCarthy is a righty with ideal size with good field vision and a high lacrosse IQ.

What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
I was considering Amherst, Richmond, Middlebury and Bowdoin.
What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
I try to use my size to my advantage and I see the field well.
What area of your game do you need to work on?
I need to work on a faster shot and a stronger lefty dodge.
My mom introduced me to lacrosse when I was young. I play varsity hockey at Delbarton and played soccer freshman year.

I play for Patriot Lacrosse and played at NSCLA, Legacy Invitational, Hotbeds, Jersey Shootout and King of the Hill.
