Tommy Beeby never met — or for that matter, played — a sport he didn’t like.
Basketball, football, baseball, tennis, soccer. You name it.
Did we mention lacrosse?
We should, because that’s where the John Jay HS (NY) Class of 2018 two-way midfielder’s college future is. And it will be at the University of Delaware, a decision first reported by Joe Lombardi on LaxLessons.com’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section.
Beeby’s commitment, made earlier this month, made him the Blue Hens’ 2018 NY/NJ/CT commit.
