Speed and skills are two of the most vital skills a lacrosse player can have.

But size matters.

Victor Titone of Kings Park High School (N.Y.) is a perfect example.

The 6-foot-4, 205-pound Titone, a senior, is an aggressive defenseman who can also be intimidating force for opposing attackmen. You can watch his highlight reel here.

“An advantage that I have over most offensive players is size,” Titone said.

Titone will take his combination of size and strength to the college game. He committed to SUNY Maritime to become Kings Park’s seventh 2014 commit on Nov. 17, a decision first reported when it was made by Joe Lombardi on’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section.

A three-sport standout, Titone earned first-team All-Division honors at defensive end and offensive tackle in football this fall.

What were the main factors in your decision?
SUNY Maritime appealed to me because it’s not too far from home, and it includes most of the aspects I was looking for. I intend to major in International Trade and Transportation and aspire to receive an NROTC Scholarship at Maritime.

What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
Norwich University, Maine Maritime, Mass. Maritime, and the United States Merchant Marine Academy

What do you think are keys to being as effective as possible on defense?
I believe it’s very important to communicate well and be aggressive on defense for a team to be successful.

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?
Throughout my four years of High School I have participated in football, winter track and lacrosse. I received a varsity letter in each sport.

I was introduced to lacrosse by my friends during my freshman year of high school.

What travel team do you play on what showcase events did you participate in?
I do not play on a travel team and I have attended numerous showcases including Top 205 at Towson University, Battle of the Hotbeds at the University of Delaware, and the Red Storm Showcase at St. John’s University.

Any final thoughts?
I would like to thank my family, especially my parents, for supporting me every step of the way and my high school coaches for helping me improve my skills.
