If you’ve been following along the last few days on LaxLessons.com’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section you know there are been plenty of commitments up and down the East Coast and as far west as California.
We now profile a commit from a player from right in between.
He’s Trey Lervick, a Class of 2016 attackman from Woodbury High School in Minnesota, whose commitment to Air Force was first reported by Joe Lombardi.
The 5-foot-11, 160-pound Lervick is a lefty feeder/finisher with outstanding field vision who Team Minnesota 2016 advance to the finals of one of the nation’s premier summer showcases, the Battle of the Hotbeds, which was played last week at the University of Delaware. He also participated in the Adrenaline Black Card Showcase and the Brine National Lacrosse Classic.
Now, here’s a Q&A with Trey on his commitment.
What were the main factors in your decision?
There were a few things that set the Air Force Academy apart from the rest.
First off, the opportunities after college that the Air Force Academy presents far surpasses the opportunities I see at other schools.
Another thing that really set it apart was the education. It gives me the option of receiving a world class education while continuing to play lacrosse after high school.
What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
I also considered Fairfield, Jacksonville and Providence.
What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
My vision, shooting and finishing. I think my playing style can be best compared to a Canadian style of play.
What area of your game do you need to work on?
I feel like I need to work most on continuing to improve physically, working to get faster and stronger.
How did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports have you played?
I was first introduced to lacrosse when I quit baseball. I was looking for another sport to try and my friend said I should try lacrosse, so I tried it and grew to love it. I also played hockey up until eighth grade, but it became too time consuming and expensive with all of the commitments required for lacrosse.
Any final thoughts?
First of all, I’d like to thank my parents for putting so much time and money into the travel through the years as well as their constant support and molding me into the person I am today.
Also I’d like to thank the Team Minnesota organization with coaches Rob Graff and Chris Fleck for all of their help through the recruiting process as well as helping me develop as an athlete and person.
This can also be said for several others I’ve had the pleasure of being coached by such as my current Woodbury High School head coach Jason Worwa, my coach through youth lacrosse Pat Donaghy, as well as my eighth-grade high school coach Rich Limpert.
