On Tuesday night, yet another one of those players spotlighted, Mahopac 6-foot-1, 175-pound senior midfield standout Chase Thompson (pictured above), committed to Division III power Franklin & Marshall.

Now, you can find out more by reading the latest installment of our “Recruit spotlight extra” feature.

In addition to reading Chase’s recruit profile by clicking here, be sure to check out a Q&A we did with him last night.

What were the main factors in your decision to attend Franklin & Marshall?
One main factor is the strong academic program that they have to offer. Also, I feel Coach (Todd) Cavallaro has strong ideas for the future of the F M lacrosse program and a great vision for where the team is headed. I look forward to learning from him and playing under him next year.

What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
The two schools I was considering other than Franklin & Marshall were Trinity and Western New England. I visited both of them, but I didn’t get the same feeling that I had when I went to visit F&M.

What adjustments do you think you will need to make to play at the next level?
I think I’m going to need to adjust to the speed of the game and to the tough competition I will face in the Centennial league.

What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
I believe my versatility is a major strength I have. I can dodge from up top and from behind and I can generate offense because of my ability to face off. I like to think of myself as a well-rounded middie who can score, but can also play defense and clear the ball.

What players have you looked up to as you have moved up through the varsity ranks?
The one player that sticks out in my mind is (former Mahopac and Sacred Heart University standout) Tony Tanzi. I remember just going to the Mahopac varsity games to watch him dominate the midfield position. I used to not be able to decide whether to play attack or midfield, but when I saw him play, I knew midfield was for me. recruit profiles
