Penncrest 2016 midfielder Ryan Kinnard has made a verbal commitment to play Division I lacrosse at Hofstra University.
Ryan Kinnard log:
High school: Penncrest
College choice: Hofstra University (committed in the spring)
Club affiliation: NXT L.C.
Major lacrosse honors/showcases: Member of state champions, 2014; Member of winning Stars and Stripes 2016 team at inaugural High School Challenge Cup; Baltimore Summer Kickoff All-Star team; MVP All-Star; Philly Showcase Camp; Philly Charity Showdown
Academic honors, service: Honor Roll, worked with high school team to mulch trails at a local park
Why did you choose Hofstra? “I chose Hofstra because the facilities are great, the coaches are awesome and they have a great lacrosse program.”
Thoughts on 2014 season and outlook for 2015: “This past high school season was amazing. To play and win a state championship is amazing and I’ll never forget that. Next season we will hopefully be good again. We lost a lot of seniors who provided big sparks for us.”
Other comments: “I want to thank Chris Bonnett and John Groses for helping me start off strong as a lacrosse player; Mark Petrone, who coached me in 7th grade and 8th grade year with Philly Fever; and also to the NXT coaches who had a big part on refining my game.”
