Westfield (VA) 2017 midfielder Kevin Petrillo has made a verbal commitment to play Division I lacrosse at Georgetown University.
Kevin Petrillo ledger:
High school: Westfield High School, Chantilly, VA)
Year of graduation: 2017
College choice: Georgetown University (ConnectLAX college profile)
Club affiliation: VLC 2017 Blue Crabs
2014 Lacrosse Honors: All-Conference (2nd team), ECLC All-Star, Summer Kick-Off tourney All-Star, Brine Nationals All-Star
2014 Academic Honors: Summa Cum Laude, Department Award for Business Law, Academic Letter,
Intended major: Business or Pre-Med
Why did you choose Georgetown: “I chose Georgetown because it is a smaller school with a perfect mix of excellent academics and strong lacrosse. I loved the campus, and like the fact it is far enough from home that I am “away,” but close enough to home so that my parents can see me play. Finally, the coaches are awesome, and are working towards building a championship culture. I wanted to be part of that.”
Thoughts on 2014 season and outlook for 2015: “Last season, Westfield lost a lot of close games. We learned from that, and by winning those games next year, we will go pretty far in the playoffs in 2015.”
Thank You: “I want to first thank my mom and dad. They have supported me in everything, given me every lacrosse opportunity, and then driven me there.
“Also, I would like to thank Coach Phil Polizzotti (Westfield), Coach John DiCamillo and Coach Adam Langley (VLC 2017). All three of them have constantly pushed me to become a better person and player, both on and off the field. I am lucky and proud be playing for them.”
Other schools considered: Ohio State and High Point University
