Fossil Ridge (CO) rising sophomore midfielder Jake Frane has made a verbal commitment to play Division I lacrosse at the University of Notre Dame

Club Affiliations: 3d Colorado, 3d National, 212 (West Coast Starz)
Major Lacrosse Honors, All-star teams, Camps, Showcases: All-Conference 1st Team, All-State Honorable Mention, Denver Shootout All-Star; Invited to a Blackcard, Maverick, Diamond, Philly Showcase

Why did you choose this school? “Notre Dame is the right mix of high-level academics and high-level lacrosse. Coach (Kevin) Corrigan has created a program that will provide me experiences and opportunities outside of lacrosse that are unique only to ND players. Ultimately, I feel comfortable and at home with the staff and school.”
What is your HS team’s outlook next year? “We had a slow start in 2014. We hope to build off the strong finish to our season as we finished tied for second place in our conference. The team really jelled late in the season and our chemistry finally came together, which will serve as a strong foundation for next year. We lost many seniors, but we have strong sophomore and junior classes coming up to help fill those spots.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank Jamie Munro for helping me get into 3d and placing me in front of college coaches at the right events. Jamie and Lance Savage have provided high level training in developing my lacrosse IQ. I would also like to thank all my youth coaches where it all began back in Oregon: David Llewellyn, Mike Krantz and Kraig McGlathery. Those guys taught me how to play proper defense so I could develop into a true full field middie; and Dennis Sullivan at OES lacrosse and Josh Peck for forcing me to learn my offhand.
“Thanks also to Scott Hochstadt and the West Coast Starz players for my first high level club play.
“And most importantly, I cannot thank my Mom and Dad enough. My dad coached me throughout my youth and pushed me to always be my best, and my Mom for her hours of time and support. Without them none of this would be possible.”
Other Schools Considered: UNC, UVA, Duke, Johns Hopkins, Denver
