Sean Lulley has yet to find a sport he doesn’t enjoy playing.

The rising sophomore at Half Hollow Hills East (NY) is a three-sport high school athlete in lacrosse, basketball and volleyball. He’s also played soccer and football.

But lacrosse is where Lulley’s college future is. The two-way midfielder as verbally committed to the admissions process at the University of Pennsylvania, a decision reported by Joe Lombardi on’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section.

The 6-foot, 165-pound Lulley, a righty, is an athletic and agile player who excels in up-tempo situations and who plays in an aggressive and hard-nosed manner.


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

What were the main factors in your decision?
I looked at the quality of education and the quality of the lacrosse program. UPenn has both.

What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
I considered Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Penn State, Michigan and Notre Dame.

I visited Harvard, Dartmouth, Penn State and Michigan.

What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
I can dodge from multiple areas on the field.  My style of play is that I am a two-way midfielder that can play both offense and defense.

What area of your game do you need to work on?
Every area. I’m never satisfied with status quo.

How did you get introduced to lacrosse?
My dad.

What travel team do you play on what showcase events did you participate in?
I play for Team 91.  I participated in Jack Reid, Maverick Showtime, Platinum Cup, Philly Showcase and many others over the years.

Any final thoughts?
I would like to thank my family and friends as well as my coaches from PAL to high school including Pete Doran and Gordie Hodgson.

I would also like to thank everyone at Team 91 especially coach Jim Mule, who has been my PAL coach starting at age 4 and has been my Team 91 coach since fifth grade. He has had such a huge impact on not only my lacrosse life but my life in general. I cannot thank him enough.
