As a tackle in football, Steven Veteri is right in the center of the action.
It’s the same way on the lacrosse field where the Yorktown High School (NY) rising senior is especially dangerous around the crease.
Veteri’s nose for the net will be heading down south.
The 6-foot-1, 220-pound righty became the fifth Class of 2017 commit for the Huskers this week when he verballed to Division II power Tampa, a decision first reported by Joe Lombardi on LaxLessons.com’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section.
“Steven is a strong physical player who finishes well inside,” Yorktown coach Sean Carney said. “I’m very happy for him as Tampa is a program on the verge of breaking into the (Division II) national title game.”
Veteri is the son of former Yorktown varsity boys basketball coach Steve Veteri, a phys-ed teacher in the Yorktown Central School District.
