There are many similarities between Justin and Troy Reh. It’s what you’d expect with twin bothers.

Justin has a 95 grade average. Troy’s is 93.8. Both will be playing college lacrosse lacrosse at the University at Albany.

But on the lacrosse field, you’ll find one big difference between the Rocky Point High School seniors. Justin is an attackman/midfielder. Troy is a defenseman,

Despite that, they play similar styles.

Both have strong stick skills and are equally adept with either hand to go along with outstanding field vision and passing ability.

“I like to push the ball and be an offensive threat from anywhere,” the 6-foot, 160-pound Justin said.

Said the 5-9, 155-pound Troy: “I am a leader on the field and I possess offensive like skills with a long pole.”

The twins share another bond. Namely, the influence their father, Scott Reh, has had on their development as players. Scott Reh was the first All-American in Rocky Point history and still holds the single-season scoring record of 154 points and 99 assists. His single-season 55 goal total rank 17th all time in New York State. He went on to play at Adelphi from 1986-89.

What were the main factors in your decision?
Justin: I loved the coaching staff and their uptempo style of play. They play a great Division I schedule and I really liked the campus as well as the academic offerings, but most importantly the opportunity to play with my brother.

Troy: The opportunity to play for (Albany Head) Coach (Scott) Marr, Coach Wolf & Coach Gleason and also the opportunity to play with my brother.

What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
Justin and Troy: Dartmouth, Lafayette, Sacred Heart, Umass, Army and Adelphi.

What area of your game do you need to work on?
Justin and Troy: Increase my size and my speed.  Every area of my game to be the best I can be.

How did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports have you played?
Justin and Troy: Our father (Scott Reh).

What showcase events did you participate in?
Justin & Troy: Dicks Sporting Goods National Champions 2012, Philly Summer Invitational Champions 2013, Maverick Big Time Shootout Champions 2013, Stowe Champions 2013, Champ Camp and Best of the Best Invitational.

Any final thoughts?
Justin: I’d like to thank my coach at Rocky Point (Mike Bowler), travel coaches, Mike Gongas and Luke Daquino (Team Long Island), and coach Rick Mercurio. Without them none of this would be possible. Special thanks go to my mom and dad (Scott and Lisa Reh) for standing behind me through the entire recruiting process and being at all my games. Especially my dad who has coached me from the beginning.

Troy: I want to thank my mom and dad (Scott and Lisa Reh) for supporting me in lacrosse since I began playing and throughout the recruiting process. Especially my dad who also was my coach.  I also want to thank Coach Bowler, Coach Mike Gongas and Coach Luke Daquino (Team Long Island) for their guidance and who both have supported me throughout the recruiting process.
