Bryan Cahill’s roots were planted just outside the nation’s tradition-rich and proud home base of lacrosse, Baltimore.
He’s now playing in the heart of the nation’s No. 1 hotspot for the lacrosse, the New York/New Jersey/Connecticut tristate region.
Next up for the Class of 2015 midfielder at Trinity-Pawling School (N.Y.): a college career at the University of Vermont.
The 5-foot-8, 150-pound Cahill, whose commitment was first reported by Joe Lombardi on LaxLessons.com’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section, is a a transfer from Severna Park High School (Md.). You can watch his highlight reel here.
Now, here’s a Q&A with Bryan on his commitment.
What were the main factors in your decision?
My decision was based off of absolutely falling in love with the school. It was the perfect fit and the coaching staff made an immediate, comfortable presence.
I loved everything about Vermont and couldn’t be happier with my commitment to the school and its lacrosse program.
What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
It came down between Vermont and Bellarmine. I did an overnight visit at Bellarmine.
What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
My strengths are definitely my speed, quickness and my defense. I’d describe my style of play as a run and gun type.
What area of your game do you need to work on?
I need to improve on my lacrosse IQ and my shot speed.
How did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports have you played?
I was introduced to lacrosse in 1st grade with my elementary school and have played ever since. I’ve also played soccer, hockey, golf, football, basketball, tennis and run cross country.
What travel team do you play on what showcase events did you participate in?
I play my club ball with T2 Lacrosse Club. This fall I played in the National 175 Invite, Mid-Fall Classic, Bulldog Bash and Shoreham-Wading River Classic.
Any final thoughts?
I need to thank my family and friends obviously. I owe a huge thank you to (Trinity-Pawling Head) Coach (Nic) Bell, I can’t stress enough how helpful he has been throughout the whole process, as have my summer coaches, Tim O’Rourke, Tim Gavin and Jamie Roell.
Also like to throw a shoutout to my third’s hockey team and the fourth line.
