Adrian Enchill makes things happen on the field.
The athletic and talented longstick midfielder at the Westminster School (CT) uses his stick skills and anticipation to throw takeaway checks. His exception quickness helps him get groundballs.
So it should come as no surprise that Enchill was coveted by many of the nation’s elite programs before giving a verbal commitment to the University of Notre Dame, a decision first reported earlier this week when it was made by Joe Lombardi on LaxLessons.com’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section.
The 5-foot-9, 160-pound Enchill, a righty, will be the third brother in his family to play collegiate lacrosse, joining AJ and Auric, who play at Tufts.
Now, here’s a Q&A with Adrian on his commitment.
What were the main factors in your decision?
I just really loved everything ND had to offer. The campus looked really nice and the people were friendly.
To top it off, Notre Dame has a really good lacrosse history and they look to win in the future. With all of this and a great education, Notre Dame was right for me.
What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
Harvard, Duke, Johns Hopkins, Michigan and Georgetown.
What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
I don’t stop playing and I try to take it to another level. Also, I use a lot of agility.
What area of your game do you need to work on?
To improve I would say to keep working on my footwork and understand angles and off-ball movement.
How did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports have you played?
Lacrosse is not the most popular sports where I’m from (Pittsfield, MA). It only became registered as an actual high school sport a few years ago as opposed to a club sport.
My brothers and I learned a lot of lacrosse watching YouTube videos and beating up on one another in backyard. One day, my brother came home with a flier about how they were trying to start lacrosse in my town and the rest is history.
What travel team do you play on what showcase events did you participate in?
I just really loved everything ND had to offer. The campus looked really nice and the people were friendly. To top it off Notre Dame has a really good lacrosse history and they look to win in the future. With all of this and a great education, Notre Dame was right for me.
How does Westminster look in 2015?
Well, every year we look to win Founders. Every team has different strengths, making every team in our league unique, yet Founders is very competitive and any team can beat any team on any day.
However, I know our team is going to be strong this year. We have a lot of skill and we really plan on this being one of our tools that we can use that to beat some of the best teams and win Founders.
Any final thoughts and people you want to thank for helping you get to this point?
I’d like to thank my mom and dad. I wouldn’t be here without them and I’m so thankful for them and how they’ve driven me everywhere to give me great opportunities.
I also want to say thanks to CYC Lacrosse with Mr. Knightley and Coach Leary, as well as coaches Morrissey, Sanborn and Adams at Fessenden. In addition, Coach Newman, Duddy and Eckerson at Westminster and Jason Wellmeyer at Prime Time.
I’d like to specially thank Jono Zissi at Adrenaline and Maverik Lacrosse for opportunities at Black Card and Showtime.
Also, a special thank you to the Lenfest family.
Finally, I want to thank God.
