“Roy is a big, strong dodging midfielder that has excellent size and is coming to school with a Division I frame. Once he develops in the weight room physically and has a year under his belt, we think the sky is the limit in terms of his potential. He is an excellent prospect but he needs to develop more as a lacrosse player.”
ITHACA, N.Y. – Jeff Tambroni, the Richard M. Moran Head Coach of Cornell Lacrosse, has announced the addition of nine freshmen to the roster for the 2009 season. Scott Austin, Chip Daugherty, JJ Gilbane, Chris Langton, Roy Lang, Mitch McMichael, Rob Pannell, Matt Restaino, and TJ Weyl will join the Big Red as they begin fall practice the week of September 15.
“Across the board, this class is extremely athletic and they are going to help us as a program,” said Tambroni. “We are excited about the athleticism that these nine guys bring to the field. It’s a group that has some pretty good lacrosse skills and a pretty high lacrosse IQ. Still, they’re going to need some instruction and repetition, because most of them are two- or three-sport athletes, but once they start playing lacrosse year-round, their potential is very exciting.”
