When Nolan Callahan transferred to prep school in New Hampshire two years ago, the hockey goalie from Florida contemplated playing tennis in the spring.

But he wound up trying lacrosse.

Now, the rising junior at Avon Old Farms (Conn.) is headed to one of the nation’s premier D-I powers — Syracuse.

Callahan’s intriguing story is among the topics Joe Lombardi writes about in his weekly look at tristate lacrosse for InsideLacrosse.com.
