Episcopal Academy signing

Episcopal Academy’s Raphael Furey (Boston University), Rich Pallazzese (Holy Cross) and Matt Ernst (Lehigh University) signed their Letters of Intent with coach Andy Hayes looking on

With family members, coaches, teachers, and some classmates sitting in the bleachers and cheering them on, three Episcopal Academy boys signed National Letters of Intent during a Wednesday ceremony in the school’s competition gymnasium.

Nov. 13 is the first day of the NCAA’s early signing period when top high school student-athletes participating in winter and spring sports can ink binding commitments with Division I colleges and universities. The Episcopal seniors who signed on the dotted line on NCAA signing day are:

Rich Pallazzese, midfielder, Holy Cross

Matt Ernst, face-off specialist, Lehigh University

Raphael Furey, defenseman, Boston University

The three lacrosse signees will all play in the Patriot League next year.

“That will be a great experience, playing against those guys in college,” said Pallazzese. “I’m excited to attend Holy Cross. I was looking for a school where I thought I would grow as a student, an athlete, and a man. Holy Cross had all of those things. I really liked the campus, the school’s academic reputation, and the coaches.”
