West Deptford (N.J.) senior midfielder Joey Diaco has made a verbal commitment to play Division II lacrosse at Merrimack College.
Joey Diaco ledger:
High School: West Deptford High School, N.J.
Year of graduation: 2014
College choice: Merrimack College
Club affiliation: South Jersey Shamrocks
Major lacrosse honors: 1st team all-conference, 1st team all-South Jersey, SJ player of the year, Maverik Showtime Sophmore and Junior year, New Jersey Brine All-American
Academic honors: National Honor Society, Laxers for Life run, Honor Roll
Intended major: Pre-Med
Looking back at 2013 and ahead to 2014: “This past year our lacrosse team accomplished a lot. We were a relatively young team, but we won our conference for the second year in a row, going undefeated in conference play and reaching the SJ semi-finals. For this upcoming year, We only graduated two seniors so we have a lot of returning starters from last year to count on. The expectations are high as we are set on winning another conference title and not only reaching the SJ final this year, but winning it too.”
Thank You: “First, I would like to thank my family for always being there for me and supporting me throughout my lacrosse career. I would also like to thank my high school coaches; Coach Mike (Yarusso), Coach Dave (Gaylord), and Coach Cip (John Cipriani). Lastly I would like to thank my Shamrock Coaches; Coach (Steve) Picot, Coach Bill (Keane), and again Coach Mike (Yarusso).”
Other Schools considered: St. Joe’s, Dartmouth
