Calvert Hall College High School (MD) sophomore midfielder Ethan Mintzer has made a verbal commitment to play Division I lacrosse at the University of Maryland.
Ethan Mintzer ledger:
High School: Calvert Hall College High School, Towson, Maryland
Graduation Year: 2016
College Choice: Maryland
Club Affiliation: Looney’s Club
Major lacrosse honors: Nike Blue Chip, Baltimore Summer Kickoff All-Star Team, ran first 2 midfield lines for Calvert Hall Varsity team, National Lacrosse Showcase, Under Armour Shoot-Out
Academic Honors: Honor Roll 1st semester
What will you major in/study? Undecided/Business
Why did you choose Maryland? “I liked the environment, and really liked Coach (John) Tillman. It also felt a lot like Calvert Hall, and I really liked that. Loved how it was a blue collar school, you have to work for everything, not everything is given to you.”
Thoughts on this past season/outlook on next season? “Last year we made it to the semi-finals versus Boys’ Latin but fell short. I thought we put in a good effort and all in all everyone had fun. Just not the ending we wanted.
“Next season we may be considered under dogs and no one expects us to be much. But I think we are going to go under the radar and do some things people might not expect us to do.”
Other schools considered: North Carolina, Ohio state, High Point
Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents for supporting me and taking me to all the lacrosse events I have participated in.
“I would also like to thank my High School coaches for helping me through this recruiting process especially Coach Bryan Kelly. Also for helping me to develop as a player and a person over the past year. I would also like to thank any coach I have had in past for helping me to grow in my athletic ability and lacrosse skills.”
