Two high-profile Philly boys’ lacrosse players have given commitments for Division I colleges.
Upper Merion rising junior attackman Trevor Kupecky has committed to Hofstra and recent Emmaus graduate Dan Kinek (midfielder) has committed to Michigan.
Kupecky had 34 goals and led the Philly area in assists with 61 in 2011. Kupecky was a First Team Suburban One American Conference pick and has an amazing 129 assists in two seasons.
Kupecky, who like Kinek plays for the Duke’s Lacrosse club, also has an impressive ledger of accomplishments on the recruiting scene. He played in the EPSLA Showcase this June and attended Jake Reed’s Nike Blue Chip Rising Junior Camp. He played on Team Philly at the Under Armour Underclassmen Games and also on the Philly team at the Brine National Lacrosse Classic this year when he made the All-Star team.
Kupecky, who helped Upper Merion claim its first Suburban One title in 2010, also considered North Carolina and Duke.
Kinek, who will spend this year as a post-graduate at Avon Old Farms (CT), led Emmaus to the Lehigh Valley Conference championship and was named league MVP. He compiled 70 goals and 24 assists and scored over 200 goals in his career.
He was a First Team All-Phillylacrosse,com pick and was MVP at the Dan Carr benefit game at the Philly Showcase in November.
