Pleasantville High School has emerged as a power in Section 1 (NY) lacrosse this decade.
One of the players who is helping to maintain the Panthers’ rise to title contender status is Jack Drillock.
Drillock, among the top juniors in the Hudson Valley, is a fundamentally sound takeaway defender who anticipates well and who plays with an intense, hard-nosed style.
He’ll be taking those skills to Siena College, having verballed to the Saints las week, a decision first reported by Joe Lombardi on LaxLessons.com’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section.
The 6-foot-1, 195-pound Drillock, a righty, combines size with athleticism.
Now, here’s a Q&A with Jack on his commitment.
What were the main factors in your decision?
When I visited with the coaches on campus and took a tour of the school. I really like the things the school has to offer, I really like the coaching staff, and I think I can do very well at Siena.
What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
I have visited several division 1 schools and I just felt that Siena suited me the best out of those schools that I was going to pursue.
What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
I believe my size, athleticism and aggressiveness contribute greatly to my style. I am able to be physical with who I am guarding while being able to get upfield and make plays with the ball.
What area of your game do you need to work on?
I am looking to improve my lateral speed and quickness by training in the offseason.
How did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports have you played?
I got introduced to lacrosse in the third grade when all of my friends started playing. My older brother also influenced me to play because he really liked it when he started two years before. I used to play basketball in middle school and I currently play varsity football.
What travel team do you play on, what showcase events did you participate in?
I started playing Prime Time last summer and we attended NYLA, King of the Hill, MVP, Tri-State and the Inside Lacrosse tournament. I also participated in the Adrenaline tournament and the Philly Showcase this fall with Prime Time.
Any final thoughts?
I just want to thank everyone who has helped and supported me along the way, especially my parents and coaches.
