The University of Michigan has launched into its inaugural season as a Division I Lacrosse school, and recently the university put together a Q & A series highlighting the school's first recruiting class.
Entitled "Class One Q & A," the segment recently posted its number four candidate, freshman Gerald Logan, who spent his first year after graduating from Sachem North in 2011 at the Hotchkiss School, an independent boarding school located in Lakeville, Conn.
Logan shared time in the lacrosse cage with three other goaltenders had transferred to Sachem North from Shoreham-Wading River, and committed to Michigan in August of 2011.
Some of the highlights from the Q & A:
On prep school preparing him to be a Division I goalkeeper ... "It definitely helped with the mental aspect, not even just playing goalie, but getting used to school and the course work, and everything else that comes with moving away. From a goalkeeper perspective, I got to lead kids that were much younger than me because that's the way the prep school process works. It was nice to show me what it takes to be a leader and what it takes to win and how much hard work you have to put in."
On being part of Michigan's first lacrosse recruiting class and the upcoming season ... "Just being able to play Division I lacrosse will be great. I've been playing lacrosse since second grade, every weekend waking up at six to practice, every day even when you're hitting a wall. It is very exciting when you finally meet your goals, especially being the first class. We have a lot of hard work ahead of us, but we also have a great work ethic on the team."
The entire interview is available on the university's website.
