Brendan Supple is starting his own, albeit unconventional, tristate lacrosse tradition.

The Avon, Conn., native, who led the nation with 283 saves made this past season for Mercersburg (Pa.) Academy, will soon be heading up to the Empire State.

The rising senior goaltender, who plays club lacrosse for the Connecticut Rip-It Elite, has given a verbal commitment to accept a scholarship offer from Division II power Le Moyne.

Chances are you haven’t seen the 6-foot, 170-pound Supple in action. You can check out the skills that resulted in his being named Mercersburg’s MVP and an All-Middle Atlantic Prep League selection this past spring by watching his highlight video in the link provided below, following a Q&A with Brendan on his commitment.

What were the main factors in your decision to attend Le Moyne?
Le Moyne was just a great fit academically and athletically. They have a great business program, and the opportunity to play for Coach (Dan) Sheehan and compete for a national championship every year was compelling.

What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
Besides Le Moyne, I considered Adelphi, Stevens, Harvard and Hobart.

What adjustments do you think you will need to make to play at the next level, and what do you think your role will be at Le Moyne?
I’ll continue to work hard on all aspects of my goaltending, especially clearing and being a vocal leader.

As a goalie, you’re responsible for quarterbacking the defense and starting offensive plays, and that’s what I plan to do at Le Moyne.

What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
My biggest strengths are my anticipation skills, quick hands, and ability to see the ball.

When did you first realize you had the potential to play at the college level?
Playing at the college level has always been a goal of mine since I started playing goalie in eighth grade. I’ve been fortunate to have great coaches at the youth (Chris Stephan), club (Bill Rabbitt), and high school (Brian Read) levels, who’ve been very supportive.
