Dan Acker log:
High School: Ridley High School
Graduation Year: 2015
College Choice: Eastern University
Club Affiliation: Baggataway LC
Lacrosse Honors: 2014 NXT invitational All-Star team
What will you major in/study? Nursing
Why did you choose Eastern? “I chose Eastern because the coaching staff made me feel at home. They were very supportive of me through the whole process and helped me with a lot. Eastern’s Nursing program is an outstanding program. I also liked the small class sizes. I knew I didn’t want to be put in a huge class where I would barely get to know the teacher.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “We have a lot of returning players from a very successful season. We hope to be competitive in the upcoming season and look forward to continuing our success.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my Mom and Dad for supporting me through my whole lacrosse career.
“In addition I would like to thank my Baggataway coaches Tony Verna, Ray Kendrick, Bryson Craft and Joe Karpinski. I also want to thank my High School coaches Kev Ellers, Doug Ellers and Steve Naumowich.”
