The first stat you need to know about Coron Broomfield has nothing to do with goals, assists, points orgroundballs.

It’s a stat that’s more often associated with football than lacrosse.

You see, Broomfield, a Class of 2016 midfielder at upstate NY power Canandaigua Academy, runs  the 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds. So as you might expect, he’s also a football standout at running back and on special teams.

But lacrosse is where Broomfield’s collegiate future lies.

He has committed to play close to home at Hobart, a decision first reported when it was made back on Aug. 30 by Joe Lombardi on’s Lacrosse Insider premium coverage section.

“Coron is an exceptionally fast, athletic midfielder,” said Canadiagua coach Ed Mulheron said.

In fact, the 5-foot-6, 163-pound Broomfield, a righty, makes things happen on both offense and defense — an ability that should serve him well at the next level as well as in his two remaining varsity seasons.
