Sean Foley is doing his part to keep traditions alive.

No program in Connecticut has churned out as many college recruits the last decade as Darien.

Foley, a dodging midfielder, is now the latest — and the Blue Wave’s first junior Division I-bound commit.

The 5-foot-11, 165-pound right-hander made a verbal commitment to attend Lehigh to become the sixth current Division I-bound Darien varsity player.

In doing so, he’s keeping a family tradition intact as well. His older brother, former DHS star Tyler, is a junior attackman at Loyola.

Now, here’s a Q&A with Sean on his commitment:

What were the main factors in your decision?
It was a combination of the size of the school, the quality of the academics and coaches (Kevin) Cassese and (Brendan) Callahan. After meeting them, it was pretty easy.

What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
Loyola, Dartmouth, Villanova, Union and Washington & Lee

What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
My lacrosse IQ, dodging and ability to create.

What players have had the greatest influence on you?
My brother Tyler had the biggest influence on me. That and going against All-American D-middies like JP Walsh helped me to improve my dodging.

When did you first realize you had the potential to play at the college level?
Freshman year when (Darien) Coach (Jeff) Brameier pulled me up to varsity.

What were some of the big summer showcase events you’ve competed in the last couple of years and how id you do at them?
Bison Brawl Champs 2010, all the tournaments playing for the CT Chargers.
