Deer Park junior attack Shannon Doolan has made a verbal commitment to play Division I lacrosse at Old Dominion University.
Shannon Doolan log:
High School: Deer Park H.S.
Graduation Year: 2014
College Choice: Old Dominion University
Club Affiliation: Long Island Yellow Jackets-Blue
Major lacrosse honors, camps and showcases: All-County, 2 Time Adidas-Brine All-American 2 Time MVP, Scoring leader for team since 9th grade. Played varsity in 8th grade.
What will you major in/study? Asian Studies/Minor in Art
Why did you choose ODU? “They have the most incredible athletic facilities. I went to places like Ohio State and Univ. of Florida and there was no comparison, ODU had them all beat! The coach was fantastic as well as the team. Anyone can go onto a winning team and look good. Go to a struggling team and make them better, now you have something!”
Outlook for your High School team? “Not very good. Every year we struggle. I see other teams that have 7 or more really good players that have dedicated all year to lacrosse. My school has much less commitment. It makes me worker harder. So, it’s okay.”
Additional Comments: “I would like to thank my parents for giving me the opportunity to not only be the best lacrosse player I can be, but the best person as well.”
