Ben Tobias log:
High School: Upper Saint Clair High School
Graduation Year: 2016
College Choice: John Carroll University
Club Affiliation: Titanium Lacrosse Club
Lacrosse Honors: NXT Can-Am Fab 40 All-Star Game, NXT Philly Showcase, Starting D-Mid on high school team as a sophomore
What will you major in/study? Business or Environmental Science
Why did you choose John Carroll? “Coach (Brian) Small has JCU on the right path to compete for an OAC Championship and National Championship every year. Academically, John Carroll was a great fit for me. It has all of the majors I am interested in. I love the campus and I like how it is close to the city of Cleveland.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “We return three WPIAL All-Section players. Our seniors are great leaders so they have been pushing the team all off season. We can make a run for a WPIAL Title if we play our game. Coach Yates and the rest of the staff do a great job to prepare us for every game. So every game is winnable.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents for everything they have done for me. Also, I would like to thank everyone at Titanium for helping me with the recruiting process. Coach Boland, Coach Schmelling, and Coach Simonetti have really helped me improve my game during the summer. They are all great coaches.
“Last, I would like to thank all of my coaches at Upper St. Clair for pushing me to work hard all year.”
Other schools considered: Seton Hill University, Lynn University, Centre College
