If you had to sum up what makes Eric Munn stand out on the lacrosse field, it would have start with go-all-out style of play
As a result, the speedy and athletic midfielder makes things happen.
Soon, he’ll be doing it at the Division I level.
The senior at the Canandaigua Academy (N.Y.) verbally committed to attend Siena College after a post-grad season in 2015, a decision first reported by Joe Lombardi on LaxLessons.com’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section.
The 6-foot, 165-pound Munn, a righty, is Canandaigua’s third Division I senior commit, joining Joe Eddinger (Albany, defense) and Brian Feldman (Quinnipiac, attack).
Now, here’s a Q&A with Eric on his commitment.
What were the main factors in your decision?
The high level of academic programs Siena has to offer, the uptempo style of play on offense and in the transition and the fact that the coaches are obviously committed to their team and school.
What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
I considered Colgate, Albany, Quinnipiac, Sacred Heat, Hobart, Le Moyne, Mercyhurst and Ithaca before selecting Siena.
What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
I think my greatest strengths as a player include my speed, ability to get ground balls, dodging and being a team first player.
I would describe myself as a hard worker who is willing to do the dirty work and put in the extra effort.
What area of your game do you need to work on?
I think the area of my game I need to work on most is my outside shooting.
How did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports have you played?
I was introduced to lacrosse through my older brothers and sister who all played. have played football, basketball and ran indoor track.
What travel team do you play on what showcase events did you participate in?
Sweetlax. I participated in the MVP, Best of the Best and NXT tournaments last summer and the UMass and Rutgers tournaments this fall.
Any final thoughts?
I want to thank my parents for helping me every step of the way thought out my 11 years of lacrosse so far. Also, I want to thank my (Canandaigua) head lacrosse coach Ed Mulheron and (Sweelax) club coach Kevin Martin.
