Episcopal Academy senior long stick midfielder Bryson Craft heads the list of seven seniors that have signed National Letters of Intent to play Division I lacrosse at Massachusetts during the early-signing period.
Craft is joined by Walpole midfielder Ryan Izzo, who set the Massachusetts state high school record for career scoring (686 points) and touchdowns (96) as a senior football player this year.
The senior running back set the records last weekend as he scored one touchdown and kicked just two extra points Sunday during a 35-14 loss to Natick, but it was enough to give him Massachusetts career records with 686 points and 96 touchdowns.
The previous records – both held by Nathan Sherr of Austin Prep (2003-06) – were 682 points and 95 touchdowns. He also finished No. 2 in career rushing yardage (5,895). The record is 6,688, set in 1995. In addition, he has gone 101 of 117 in extra points and 3 of 4 in field goals.
However, his football career isn’t quite yet complete. He can add to his legend when the Rebels take on Weymouth in their traditional Thanksgiving Day finale. Izzo will play midfield this spring at Walpole. Izzo had 58 goals and 15 assists as a junior and has 93 goals for his career.
The other signees include face-off specialist Joseph Calvello (Naperville North in Illinois), defenseman Conor Casey (Mount St. Joseph’s in Maryland), defenseman James Fahey (St. John’s Prep in Danvers, Mass.), midfielder Tyler Knight (St. Andrews in Florida) and attackman Connor Mooney (Avon Old Farms in Connecticut from Wilbraham, Mass.).
