Glenn Janik is heading south.

The senior attackman at perennial Section 1 (N.Y.) power Mahopac is used to lacrosse season starting amid frigid temperatures, and sometimes, even snowy or icy conditions.

Not after next spring, though.

Janik verbally committed to Division II St. Leo University in Florida.

The 6-foot-1, 165-pound righty is a strong dodger, with the combination of good stick skills and speed. You can watch his highlight reel here.

recruiting_updateNow, here’s a Q&A with Glenn on his commitment.

What were the main factors in your decision?
Connecting with the team and coaches, as well as a beautiful campus and good academic program.

What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
I was also considering Western New England, Assumption, Emmanuel and Springfield.

What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
My strengths are my dodging ability, speed and stick skills. My style of play would  be dodging and drawing the slide, then passing the ball to the open man.

What area of your game do you need to work on?
I can always improve on my abilities in all areas of the game.

How did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports have you played?
My parents signed me up for MSA lacrosse when I was in third grade and I loved the game right away. I also play on the Mahopac varsity basketball team and I used to play football and roller hockey when I was younger.

What travel team do you play on what showcase events did you participate in?
During the summers, I played on the Mahopac Titans lacrosse team which is my high school travel team. This past summer, I also participated in The Island Uprising at Stony Brook Showcase and the Elite 100 Showcase at Endicott College.

Any final thoughts?
I would like to thank my parents for always being there and supporting me. Especially my father for taking me to all the tournaments and showcases. I would also like to thank Coach Haddeland and Coach Mo (my HS coaches) for making my high school career an enjoyable and memorable one thus far.
