To say Brett Habich will be giving Division I his best shot would be quite appropriate.
After all, the Class of 2016 right-handed midfielder from Red Bank Catholic (NJ) is known for his blistering shot that’s been clocked at 96 miles per hour, which he can place anywhere in the net.
Habich will take his shot to Siena College. His verbal commitment to the Saints was first reported by Joe Lombardi on LaxLessons.com’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section.
The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Habich, who plays travel lacrosse for Team United and also plays football for Red Bank, also has ideal size and strength.
Now, here’s a Q&A with Brett on his commitment.
What were the main factors in your decision?
I had a great connection with (Head) Coach (John) Svec and (Assistant) Coach Rob) Cross at Siena and i loved the campus and i instantly felt welcome when I visited.
What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
I was considering Albany, Colgate, Monmouth and Fairfield.
What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
One of my strengths has to be my shot. I shoot 96 mph and can place it all over the net. My style of play is definitely a powerful style. I try to run north and south down the field and definitely try to use my size to my advantage.
What area of your game do you need to work on?
There is always room for improvement. I always try to work on my off hand and try to be as versatile as possible with going both left and right.
How did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports have you played?
I have been playing lacrosse since I was in first grade.
My brother Lucas (RMU ’18 attack) introduced me to the game at a young age and I have also played football all my life as well. Along with some other sports like basketball, hockey, and baseball, I stuck with football and lacrosse through high school.
What travel team do you play on what showcase events did you participate in? I play for United Lacrosse NJ and I went to the Capital Challenge in Albany for the past two years and I also did Maverik Showtime the summer of 2013.
Any final thoughts?
I would really like to thank my coaches (Team United directors) Steve Carcaterra and Ric Beardsley for helping me every step of the way in the recruiting process and pushing me to be my best and improve in every way possible.
