20 Feb Special Report: College Coaches Recruiting Multi-Sport AthletesESPN HS released a story featuring college coaches' responses to the issue of playing multiple sports vs. specialization. The coaches were asked: How important do coaches view a recruit's ability to play other sports besides Lacrosse? 🥍John Paul (University of Michigan)"There's a huge cross-training benefit to an athlete playing more than one sport. Playing in more than one season helps simulate the amount of time and commitment you'll have to spend as a college athlete. But most importantly, it gives athletes more chances to compete. We prefer athletes who have a burning desire to compete as much as possible." 🥍Dave Pietramala (Johns Hopkins University)"We love two and three-sport athletes. The lessons learned, skills that are developed, and competitiveness that is revealed can only help a young man who is headed into Division I Lacrosse." 🥍Bill Tierney (University of Denver)"I continuously recommend to young men to play more than just one sport in high school. First of all, any sport, including Lacrosse, can become boring if obsessed over for 12 months a year. Secondly, other sports help young men develop a skill set not available when working out on his own. Sacrifice for the team, teamwork, conditioning, confidence, handling defeat and victory, and time management are among the many things that can be gained by playing another sport. Strength, speed, agility and toughness can be enhanced by playing other sports as well." 🥍Charley Toomey (Loyola University Maryland)"We are, absolutely, looking for well-rounded athletes. We love kids who play Football, Hockey, Basketball, Wrestling and Soccer. Many times, they are captains of these teams in their junior or senior years, which helps them from a leadership standpoint as well." #WordsofWisdom
