Hen Hud’s Bobby Sincero also drew recruiting interest from Colgate, Brown, Manhattan, Middlebury, Colby, Nazareth, Washington College, Clark and Lynchburg.
I think I know a trend when I see one, folks.
The commitment of Hen Hud senior goaltender Bobby Sincero to attend Army marks the third Section 1 player from the Class of 2010 that is bound for West Point.
Sincero, who was also a standout on the WestRock summer travel team, joins Somers attackman Greg Petre and John Jay midfielder Will O’Donnell.
“My goal while looking at colleges and during the recruiting circuit was to not sacrifice my education for wanting to play college lacrosse,” said Sincero, who also received interest from Colgate, Brown, Manhattan, Middlebury, Colby, Nazareth, Washington College, Clark and Lynchburg. “My dream was always to attend a top academic school and play at a high level.
“Army was the culmination of my dream in full. The atmosphere at the school is incredible. The facilities are the best I have seen and the coaching staff is amazing. All of them have been a goalie coach at least once in their careers.”
Sincero made his commitment after returning from a weekend visit to Army on Sunday.
“After talking to the lacrosse guys extensively over the weekend during my visit and reflecting on their experiences I realized that West Point was the perfect fit for me and when Coach (Joe) Alberici asked me to commit on Sunday, I had already known my answer would be yes,” Sincero said.
Though academics was a key factor, Sincero said he thinks he can reach his potential athletically at West Point as well.
“Its amazing the competition and speed of top Division I practices and the fluidity with which they move through drills,” Sincero said. “It’s the ideal situation for bringing my game to the highest level I can.
“The facilities are incredible. They have the largest weight room I have ever seen a beautiful stadium and an amazing new indoor facility. The coaches are great people and easy to talk to all of them have coached goalies.”
Sincero said he first thought about the possibility of playing Division I lacrosse at a young age.
“I would say in sixth grade when I started playing goalie,” he said. “I watched (Yorktown All-American) Ethan Vedder play and his style inspired me to play with distinct energy and I realized that if I played like that I could go to a great college and play lacrosse, too.”
