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.

The 6-foot, 185-pound righty is a physical strong two-way player with good versatility and a high upside. You can watch his highlight reel here.
