The combination of size and skills has served Sean Leahey well at Seton Hall Prep (NJ).
He hopes that continues to be the case at the next level.
The Class of 2016 midfielder verbally committed last week to Providence College, a decision first reported when it was made by Joe Lombardi on LaxLessons.com’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section.
The 6-foot-1, 170-pound Leahy, a righty, is an athletic dodger who is strong with both hands.
Now, here’s a Q&A with Sean on his commitment.
What were the main factors in your decision?
Providence had a great mix of academics and athletics. Their facilities blew me away. Joe McHale (SHP ’15) is a recruit also and had fantastic things to say about Providence.
In addition, the Divison I athletics and their coaching staff played a big role in my decision.
What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
I considered Saint Joseph’s, Rutgers, Boston University, Drexel, Amherst and Dartmouth.
What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
I would describe my style as an athletic midfielder who can run the field.
What area of your game do you need to work on?
I need to work on my overall strength thats something I have improved on but still need to work on. I also need to work on my overall vision of the field.
How did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports have you played?
I was introduced to lacrosse in sixth grade by my older brother’s friend Mike Woglom, who is a coach at Catholic University. I have played basketball, football and lacrosse.
What travel team do you play on?
Any final thoughts and people you want to thank for helping you react this point?
I would like to thank my family for supporting me throughout my lacrosse career thus far. In addition, all the time and money they have put on the sport.
I would like to thank my older brother Connor Leahey for pushing me academically and in the weight room.
(Head) Coach (Dave) Giarrusso and the SHP lacrosse program have pushed me to be the best player I can be.
In addition, (Leading Edge Coach) Chris Roy was a great motivator and resource throughout my recruiting process.
