Cody Solmosy has never met a sport he doesn’t like.
The junior midfielder at Sachem East (NY) is also a four-year starter on the Flaming Arrows’ JV and varsity football teams. He also played volleyball and basketball in middle school.
But it was what happened while playing baseball as a first-grader that wound up starting a path he’s taken to collegiate lacrosse. Several members of Solmosy’s family urged him to give lacrosse a try. He did just that, and now, 10 years later, it’s resulted in an opportunity to play for a defending national champion.
Solmonsky verbally committed to Division II champion Limestone earlier this week, a decision first reported by Joe Lombardi on LaxLessons.com’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section.
Now, here’s a Q&A on his commitment.
What were the main factors in your decision?
The main factors of my decision was what they had to offer. I really enjoyed the college, and I can’t wait to win a national championship.
What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
Some of the other schools I was considering were Boston University, Rutgers University, Monmouth University, Drexel University and the University of Tampa.
What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
My shot on the run, my physicality, and my lacrosse IQ. Also I am a downfield dodger.
How did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports have you played?
I got introduced to the game when I was in first grade by my father, brother and my mom always bugging me to pick up a stick. If it wasn’t for them, I probably wouldn’t have this opportunity.
What travel team do you play on what showcase events did you participate in?
During the offseason I play for Team Sachem East.
The showcases I attended were first look, Blue Chip 225, I was selected for the all star team, and I was a top 44 player in the Long Island region for the Under Armour all America game.
Any final thoughts and people you want to thank for helping you reach this point?
I would like to thank my family for always pushing me to get what I want.
