Alex Moeser’s freshman season on the Greenwich High School varsity lacrosse team was memorable for more than one reason.

For starters, the Cardinals completely an unlikely run through the FCIAC tournament by winning the championship.

Moeser also discovered something very important.

Namely, that he had the potential to eventually play Division I lacrosse.

That potential will soon become a reality.

The junior midfielder gave a verbal commitment to accept a scholarship offer from Hofstra, as we noted on Twitter.

Now, let’s hear directly from the 6-foot, 180-pound right-handed Moeser on his commitmet.

What were the main factors in your decision?
Hofstra has a great combination of academics and lacrosse.  (Head) Coach (Seth) Tierney and (Assistant) Coach (J.P.) Brazel were very welcoming when I visited, and I could really see myself spending four years there.

What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
Maryland, Fairfield and Albany.  It was a very tough decision.

What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
My speed and my athleticism.  I am also a good team player and have a good lacrosse IQ.

What areas of your game do you think you need to improve on?
My defense and my offhand.

When did you first realize you had the potential to play at the college level?
My youth coaches told me early on that I had the potential to play at the D-I level and I realized that this was true when I made the varsity team as a freshman.

What were some of the big summer showcase events you’ve competed in the last couple of years and how did you do at them?
I attended Maverick Showtime twice and made the all-star team last summer.  The tournament was fun and I enjoyed meeting players from all around the country.
