BELLFLOWER -- In October, Bosco Lacrosse player Mitch Myers, a junior, was rated the No. 77 Class of 2019 prospect in the nation by Recruiting Rundown, a respected Lacrosse rating service.
Last week, he justified that ranking by committing to Bryant University in Rhode Island, currently ranked number 19 among NCAA Division I colleges.
In the spring, Myers helped lead Bosco to an 8-8 record in the programs first season of CIF play, winning 96 percent of his face-offs. After graduating from St. John Bosco High School, Myers intends to major in Business while attending Bryant University.
“Perhaps the key in deciding upon my higher education was the Lacrosse coach at Bryant, Mike Pressler,” recalled Myers upon making his announcement. “He is admired by his players, and treats each and every player with respect.”
Bosco coach Chris Jewett expressed his delight in Myers’ announcement.
“I am extremely proud of Mitch,” he commented. “It’s great to see Mitch’s hard work pay off. Bryant University gets a student who not only excels in the classroom as a 4.0 student, but excels on the field as well.”
