North Atlanta High School (GA) senior defenseman Rob Woolfolk has made a commitment to play Division I lacrosse at Virginia Military Institute.
Rob Woolfolk ledger:
High School: North Atlanta High School
Graduation Year: 2014
College Choice: Virginia Military Institute
Club Affiliation: Lb3
Major lacrosse honors: Brine All-American Southeastern Showcase All-Star team, Top 205, Team Captain
Academic Honors: IB Diploma candidate
What will you major in/study? Business and economics
Why did you choose VMI? “Once I arrived at VMI I immediately knew it was the school for me. The education and alumni network are incredible. I knew that VMI was the place for me when coach (Brian) Anken told us “that a graduate from VMI does one of two things, protects our country, or runs out country.”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “This last lacrosse season North Atlanta fell one win away from making our first playoff appearance in school history. Being a relatively young program that would have been a huge deal. This year North Atlanta has so much potential, we have guys that know how to play the game, and have the lacrosse IQ to make up for the youth we have. My goal for the season is to make the playoffs and make history in my final year.”
Thank You: “First and foremost I want to thank God for giving me the strength and patience to make it through the recruiting process. Secondly, I want to thank my Mom and Dad for supporting me and allowing me to take advantage of every opportunity that I was given these last few summers.
“Also I would like to thank my two older brothers for being positive influences for me my whole life.
“As far as lacrosse goes I want to thank every coach I have ever had, especially Liam Banks, Brian Silcott, Devin Madden, Jason Washington, and Patrick Cheney.
“Last but not least I would like to thank all of my friends and family who supported me for the last few years. Without the support they gave me I may not have made it.”
Other schools considered: Mercer and High Point
