Haverford High senior long stick midfielder Joe Lasprogata has made a verbal commitment to play Division I lacrosse at Mercer University (GA).

Lasprogata intends to study Biology with hopes of going to Pharmacy school.

“I liked the fact that it was a small liberal arts institution and that they have their own school of Pharmacy,” Lasprogata said. “Being in Georgia, it’s nice to get away but it’s only a plane ride (from home).”

The lacrosse program at Mercer is breaking barriers. The Bears are in their first year of existence and the first Division I intercollegiate men’s lacrosse program in Georgia.

“Instead of being part of an established team I get to help build a team,” Lasprogata said.

Lasprogata also considered St. John’s, Susquehanna and Franklin and Marshall.

He is the second Haverford High senior to commit to play college lacrosse. Earlier, face-off specialist/midfielder Nick Chambers committed to play for Widener.

Lasprogata is confident his Fords will be a much-improved team in the Central League and challenge for a playoff berth.

“We almost have the same team as last year,” said Lasprogata. “We only lost three seniors. Everyone has been working hard, we will definitely be successful.”
