To say Dawson Wynne was introduced to lacrosse at a young age would be putting it mildly.
Wynne, a freshman midfielder at the Salisbury School (CT), is the son of Salisbury head coach Bobby Wynne.
“I’ve grown up on Salisbury School’s campus where I have been exposed to a lot of great players and role models,” Dawson Wynne said.
Being immersed in lacrosse has helped Wynne emerge as one of the top players at his position in his case in the nation.
Last week, he decided where he will play at the next level, verbally committing to the University of Maryland, a decision first reported by Joe Lombardi on LaxLessons.com’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section.
The 5-foot-10, 155-pound Wynne, a righty, is a skilled and athletic offensive performer who is especially adept at shooting on the run. He also excels in football and hockey.
What were the main factors in your decision?
This was a very difficult decision to make because all of the programs and coaches were great.
Ultimately, the main factors in my decision were size, location, and the overall fit. I’m really excited to attend UMD and play for coach (John) Tillman and his staff.
What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
I was considering Michigan, UVA, Cornell, Duke and Penn State and I visited Denver and Hopkins.
Have you decided what academic major you plan to pursue?
What area of your game do you need to work on?
I think that I can work on all parts of my game.
What travel team do you play on what showcase events did you participate in?
I currently play for Sweetlax and I will be participating this fall in the Philly Freshman Showcase and the Sweetlax Invitational.
Any final thoughts and people you want to thank for helping you reach this point?
I would like to thank all of the coaches that I spoke with during the recruiting process, the Sweetlax program led by Coach (Kevin) Martin, all of my past and current coaches, and of course my family for all of their guidance and support over the last few months.
