Saint John’s High School (MA) 2015 attackman Parker Jean has made a commitment to play Division III lacrosse at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institue (RPI).
Parker Jean ledger:
High School: Saint John’s High School, Massachussetts
Graduation Year: 2015
Position: Attack (Lefty)
Club Affiliation: Laxachusetts
Lacrosse Honors: Blue Chip 225, Philly Invitational Winner, King of the Hill, Tri State, National 175
What will you major in/study? Bio Medical Engineering with an Entrepreneurial Business minor
Why did you choose RPI? “The Engineering program is in the top 5. The Varsity athletic facilities are great. Coach (Jim) Townsend and Coach (Bill) Ells made it an easy decision for me. They both are straight shooters and that is what I am looking for in coaches.”
Outlook for your High School team? “This year will be an interesting one for Saint John’s. We have over the last couple years been in the top 10 in the state and near the top of our D2 division. We were 19-2 in 2014 beating the ultimate D1 state champions and the 2013 D1 state champions. This year we will be need to move to a more open set and free flow offense to make up for lost offensive production. We definitely have the personnel and it will be fun for sure. I can’t wait to go to battle with these guys.”
Thank You: “I definitely would like to thank Coach Evans and Pascal at Laxachusetts. Coach Evans really drove me hard over the fall and winter and made me a much much better player.
“I also would like to thank Coach Leary at Saint John’s High and the Saint John’s school. He really instilled a work ethic at Saint John’s Lax that make us consistently a contender and personally helped me grow. The rigors of the school have prepared me for the next step.
“I would especially like to thank my mom and dad for driving me from Maryland to Vermont every year over the last 5 years…. Thanks Mom & Dad !”
Other schools considered: Union, Stevens Institute, Babson, Skidmore
