Desert Vista (AZ) 2015 attackman/midfielder Raphael Vargas has committed to play junior college lacrosse at the Community College of Baltimore County at Essex.
Raphael Vargas ledger:
High school: Desert Vista High, AZ
Graduation year: 2015
College choice: Community College of Baltimore County at Essex
Club affiliation: Force LC
Major lacrosse honors: 1st team All-State 2014
Intended major: undecided
Why did you choose Essex? “I chose Essex because I wasn’t really on many coaches recruiting lists, and I know at a good program Essex I have a chance to prove that I can play lacroose at a high level coming out of a non-hot bead like Arizona.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season: “Last year we won the state championship and we lost a great group of seniors, but I still believe we have the best defensive unit and the most offensive firepower in the state. We can get the job done again this year.”
Thank You: “I’d like to thank Dan Lannon, Doug Lipka, Matt Rakowski, Anthony Abbadessa, Stephen Votto, and Tommy Brackins.”
Other schools considered: Ohio Wesleyan, Colorado Mesa, Onandaga CC
