“…Long signed his letter of intent to play college lacrosse at the University of Virginia. Long just picked up the sport a few years ago but quickly has become a very good defenseman…”

He comes from a football family and he’s been a star quarterback at Saint Anne’s Belfield the last few years but Wednesday, Howie Long. Jr. made it official: he’s choosing a different sport for college.

Wednesday, Long signed his letter of intent to play college lacrosse at the University of Virginia. Long just picked up the sport a few years ago but quickly has become a very good defenseman.

 Long says he looked other schools, but with Virginia having a great academic reputation and an outstanding lacrosse program, and being close to home, it was an easy decision.
