Brent Noseworthy is a strong and athletic player who can score from inside or out.

Yes, he has a nose for the net (we couldn’t resist), but he’s also effective in the faceoff X as well.

The 6-foot-3, 195-pound 2015 midfielder from Burlington, Ontario, will be taking his myriad skills to Cornell University. Noseworthy’s commitment to the Big Red was reported Sept. 18 by Joe Lombardi on’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section.

The lefty, who plays for Edge Lacrosse, brings a box lacrosse-style to field lacrosse, like many Canadians.

“I like to set pick-and-rolls and work off-ball,” he said. “I also like to push fast breaks off the faceoff.”

Noseworthy’s skill sets are pretty unique. He’s now playing goaltender in box lacrosse and midfield in the field game.

What were the main factors in your decision?
I choose to attend Cornell University for a variety of reasons. When I first stepped on campus, it immediately felt like a perfect fit. The balance between the elite academics and the excellent lacrosse program instantly gained my interest.

Under Coach (Ben) DeLuca’s lead, I am confident I will prosper not only as a lacrosse player, but also as an individual.

What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
I was also considering Brown University and Yale University.

What area of your game do you need to work on?
An area of my game I need to work on is my speed. The game of lacrosse is all about quickness, which I feel that I will make myself a better player if I improve on my explosiveness and on my foot speed.

How did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports have you played?
I was introduced to lacrosse at a young age through my father and have loved the game ever since. Growing up, I have been a part of the Burlington Chiefs Minor Lacrosse Association and the Burlington Eagles Rep Hockey Association. Currently, I am a box lacrosse goalie for the Junior B Oakville Buzz, and a field lacrosse player for Edge Elite 2015.

What travel team do you play on what showcase events did you participate in?
This summer with the Edge Elite 2015 team, I participated in the Adrenaline Black Card Showcase, NCSLA tournament and Gait Cup tournament where I broke my ankle, ending my summer lacrosse season.

Any final thoughts?
Thanks to all my friends, family, coaches and teammates for the support. Most importantly, thanks to the Edge Lacrosse program and my parents who have helped turn my dream into a reality.
