The Flaming Arrows have 11 Class of 2015 standouts who have announced their intentions to play at the collegiate level.

Among them is defender Brian Biase, whose commitment to Division III Moravian, first reported when it was made by Joe Lombardi on’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section.

Brian is a great kid and teammate,” Sachem North coach Jason Mauro said. “Brian has worked hard to improve his game over the last year. He will continue to work and improve.”

The 5-foot-6 Biasi, a righty, is an aggressive and physical player who is known for his all-out style of play.
