Penn Charter senior goalie Dan Carr has signed a letter of intent to play next year at Lehigh University.
“I hadn’t really considered it early on,” Carr said. “But I talked to coach Cassese and he got me on campus for a visit.
“It just felt right. Part of that was the school; it’s a great school and I want to study engineering. It’s one of the best places I could go for that. I not only liked coach Cassese, I liked the entire coaching staff. They are youthful and they are still playing.
“Also, to have a goalie coach like coach (Brendan) Callahan will be really helpful for me. He led the NCAA in save percentage as a junior and senor at Stony brook.”
Carr knows he will be counted on heavily this year for the young Quakers, who have the task of competing in the powerful Inter-Ac League and also playing a tough non-league schedule.
“We’re just like Lehigh, we’re going to be young,” he said. “Our defense is young, but they’re going to be very good.
“If we can work together as a team and set me up with the shots I want to see, I’m really excited about what I can do and what we can do as a team. I wouldn’t be playing goalie if I didn’t have fun with all the pressure that comes along with that.”
