Haverford School senior attackman Kip Taviano has made a verbal commitment to play Division I lacrosse at Furman University.
Kip Taviano log:

Year of graduation: Class of 2013
Club affiliations: Old School, Team 302
Lacrosse honors, camps: Nike Blue Chip Rising Sophomore and Senior, Brine Shootout,
Intended major: Undecided
Why did you choose Furman? “On my visit to Furman I immediately felt real comfortable with the school and especially with Coach (Richie) Meade. The campus was one of the nicest campuses I have ever been on, and it all felt very familiar. Coach Meade’s vision for the future of Furman lacrosse, and what he is looking for in a student-athlete was one of the most impressing things I heard. Getting the opportunity to start a new program from nothing, and being the first team ever at Furman is something special. I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to be coached by one of the legends of the game today. Are first game is against UNC and you cant really ask much more then that, to play the best teams.”
HS team’s outlook for 2013: “We lost a lot of talent to graduation. A lot of people are writing us off, which is a mistake. We have a lot of players that can step into those holes. Should be a real exciting season.”
Other comments: “I want to thank my family, especially my Mom and Dad. Also thanks to my Haverford Coaches: Coach (John) Nostrant, Coach (Mark) Petrone, Coach (Travis) Loving, and Coach (Erik) Blindenbacher. A special thanks to Mr. Nealon. And my youth coaches Coach Urso, Coach Snow, and Coach Kirkpatrick.”
