Air Force has been flying high when it comes to landing commitments from standouts in the nation’s No. 1 hotspot for lacrosse, the New York/New Jersey/Connecticut region.
The latest commitment for the Falcons comes not only from beyond the tristate, but beyond the Northeast well.
It comes from athletic midfielder Cole Haverty of Westminster Schools in Atlanta.
