When his twin brother, Chase, committed to Boston University back in December, it was as if a spark ignited in Harrison Levesque.
“When he first committed, I was very determined to work even harder than he had because he really showed me that hard work does pay off,” said Harrison, a 2016 faceoff midfielder for Connecticut power Ridgefield said of Chase, a defenseman for the Tigers. “He really motivated me to get into the weight room more often and train as hard as I possibly could.”
Harrison Levesque’s work ethic has also resulted in a future in college lacrosse. He verbally committed to Roger Williams earlier this week, a decision first reported by Joe Lombardi on LaxLessons.com’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section.
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Levesque, a righty, is adept at winning the clamp on the faceoff and starting transition opportunities.
Now, here’s a Q&A with Harrison on his commitment.
What were the main factors in your decision?
The campus was beautiful. When I stepped onto the campus the day I went for my tour, I immediately saw myself attending the school. I felt that the school was a perfect size for me, as I enjoy a smaller environment for learning.
What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
I considered SUNY Cortland, Franklin & Marshall and I also visited Franklin & Marshall.
Have you decided what academic major you plan to pursue?
I have not, however I am strongly leaning towards either being apart of the business school or school of education.
What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
I feel that my strengths would be my ability win the clamp on the faceoff and start transition. As I move forward, I would love to work on my footwork as it is crucial to the faceoff position. With the new college rules, it is important that I learn to get away safely with the ball.
What travel team do you play on what showcase events did you participate in?
I played for Team Superstar ever since I believe fourth or fifh grade, and I attended the Battle of the Hotbeds, Legacy in Massachusetts, and many others.
Any final thoughts and people you want to thank for helping you reach this point?
I would love to thank my family and everyone else that helped me on the way, an my teammates who I have been playing with ever since I first touched a stick when I was 9 years old.
I would also like to thank one of my oldest coaches, Mr. Philbin. He has motivated me the most to work as hard as I possibly could. He has helped coach me and has been there by my side during every practice up until High school and has been there coaching me during all the off seasons so that I was putting in as much work as I possibly could.
