Bethpage 2017 defenseman/LSM Thomas Galgano has made a verbal commitment to play Division I lacrosse at Binghamton University.
Thomas Galgano log:
High School: Bethpage High School
Graduation Year: 2017
College Choice: Binghamton University (ConnectLAX college profile)
Club Affiliation: 91 Lacrosse/ Viper Lacrosse
Major lacrosse honors: Selected to the Nassau County All-Star Team for the LI Showcase/ Blue Chip All-Star Team
Academic honors, service projects: Principal’s Gold Honor Roll
What will you major in/study? Sciences
Why did you choose the school? “Binghamton is a great school academically. I believe that you should choose a college that will help you for not only 4 years, but the rest of your life. Binghamton will put me in a great situation when I graduate. I fell in love with the campus when I first saw it. I’m very excited to be a Bearcat.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “We have a lot of players returning from last year. With age comes experience and we will use that to our advantage. Our team will use our loss to Lynbrook in the semi-finals last year as motivation to win championships. Bethpage enters the season seeded 3rd behind Lynbrook and Manhasset.”
Thank You: “My commitment would not have been possible if it wasn’t for my parents paying for my showcases and driving me to all my tournaments. It’s a great feeling knowing they will always have your back and support everything you do. I would never be playing lacrosse at such a high level if it wasn’t for my Coach Tom Luzzi. With his experience in lacrosse he noticed I had the tools to be a defenseman. In 6th grade he switched me from midfield to defense. He taught me everything I know and I could not thank him enough.”
Other schools considered? Lehigh, Stony Brook, Ohio State, Sacred Heart
