Olympia (FL) 2017 LSM/face-off Alex Aken has made a verbal commitment to play Division II lacrosse at Palm Beach Atlantic University.
Alex Aken profile:
High School: Olympia, FL
Graduation Year: 2017
College Choice: Palm Beach Atlantic University
Club Affiliation: Team Florida/Florida National, World Lacrosse Foundation
Major lacrosse honors: 2015 All-Conference, School Record for Ground Balls in a Season, 2x “Most Ground Balls” award, 2x Long Island Legends MVP, 2015 Team Florida Showcase All-Star, Blue Chip Recruit, Outlaws Captain, Outlaws MVP
What will you major in/study? Divinity
Why did you choose this school? “There were three factors that were important in my college decision: the availability of the degree I am pursuing, the campus environment, and the coaching staff. Palm Beach Atlantic (PBA) was an unrealistically perfect fit for me. Not only do they have a Divinity program as well as a lacrosse team, they are only a couple of hours away from my home town. In my search for a Christian, family-oriented college, all of the pieces seemed to fall in to place which ultimately led to my commitment to PBA.”
People to thank: “I’d like to start by thanking The Lord for guiding my footsteps to PBA. More importantly, I’d like to thank Him for guiding me to the people that helped me to get there.
“Thank you to my coaches, family, teammates, friends, classmates, and teachers for being my backbone throughout my lacrosse career. I would like to give a special thank you to my Mom, Dad, and Sister for supporting me and attending all of my lacrosse events. I’m thankful for Coach (Chris) Southard and (Jason) Schmidt for the opportunity to play at the next level. Go Titans and Go Sailfish!”
Other schools considered: Delaware, Jacksonville, Florida Southern, Tampa
