LaxLessons – The Leader.

Our groundbreaking, imitated, but never duplicated coverage,

and Recruiting Rundown, launched in 2009.

Get caught up on the latest news right here, right now by visiting’s groundbreaking, imitated, but never duplicated Lacrosse Insider. It’s the No. 1 source and unparalleled leader for recruiting news, analysis and objective information in the NY/NJ/CT tristate hotspot and the entire lax galaxy, featuring nationally respected, award-winning multimedia news and sports director, manager, producer and editor Joe Lombardi, the author of the latest edition of “Lacrosse for Dummies.” Access Insider here.



Newly named Manhattan College coach Drew Kelleher has been making his mark by picking up a flurry of commitments this month, if you’ve been following along on with Joe Lombardi on our Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section. 

One of Kelleher’s latest verbals comes from well beyond not only the tristate hotspot, but the entire Northeast.

It comes from attackman Trevor Pelletier, a native of Gulliver Prep (FL) in Miami.

The 5-foot-10, 160-pound righty is an offensive ignitor with strong field vision and a high lacrosse IQ. A feeder/finisher, Pelletier had 39 goals and 41 assists this past spring, earning first-team all-district honors.

An outstanding student, he has a 5.13 weighted GPA (3.75 unweighted).

Recruiting abstractNow, here’s a Q&A with Trevor on his commitment.

What were the main factors in your decision?
Location, majors offered, coaching staff, scholarship money and lacrosse community.

What other schools were you considering and what other schools did you visit?
I also considered Amherst, Sacred Heart, Dartmouth, Monmouth, RIT, Stevenson and Gettysburg.

I visited Tufts, Georgetown, Washington and Lee, and Brown.

Have you decided what academic major you plan to pursue?
I plan on majoring in communications and aspire to work for ESPN.

What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
I feel my strengths are vision, decision making and footwork.

I would describe my style of play as explosive and deliberate while at the same time being the offensive quarterback.

What area of your game do you need to work on?
I need to work on my physical size, finishing, and shooting percentage.

tpelletiertweetHow did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports did you play?
I got introduced to lacrosse through a friend of mine who I played hockey with. He had just started playing and said that I would love it, so I decided to try it out.

Throughout my life, I played baseball for 10 years, hockey for four years (even though I lived in Miami), golf pretty much my entire life, soccer, football and basketball.

What travel team do you play on and what showcase events did you participate in?
I play for my school’s club team, Raider Lacrosse Club, Florida Xtreme, and Team Florida. I attended Nike Blue Chip, MVP (all star), Battle of the Hotbeds (all star), FLG Legit 120 (all star), NHSLS, NLI, Long Island Fall Classic, Annapolis Fall Invitational, Charlotte Fall Classic, Good to Great (all star), Elite 100 (all star) and New England Top 150.

Any final thoughts and people you want to thank for helping you reach this point?
I would like to thank my family, coaches and friends.

Most importantly, I would like to thank Coach Piggot, Coach Crowley, Coach Goldberg, Coach Spaulding, my parents and my brother.

Without any of these people, I would not have made it to where I am today.
