Hofstra University Head Men’s Lacrosse Coach Seth Tierney today announced that fifth-year senior midfielder Kevin Ford has opted to end his college playing career due to a knee and leg injury. He will graduate in December with a bachelor’s degree in communications.

Ford, who played in 39 games during his Pride career, was fifth on the team in scoring last year, recording 16 goals and 10 assists in 16 games. He also picked up 20 ground balls and had three man-up goals. Ford tallied three multi-goal games including a five-goal contest against Delaware in the CAA Championship Tournament semifinals.

In 2009 as a redshirt freshman, he posted his best season offensively recording 19 goals and nine assists for 28 points in 14 contests. He was named to the All-Colonial Athletic Association Rookie Team that season.

“It is with great sadness I announce that I will be unable to play my final season at Hofstra due to injury,” Ford said. “I have been extremely proud to be part of this program and will miss the brotherhood and sense of family I have enjoyed with the team since 2008. I wish my friends the best of luck in 2012 as well as in the years to come.”

For his career, Ford had 55 goals and 26 assists for 81 career points with 59 ground balls.
