Liam Rosenthal – Robert Morris University (Lacrosse)
Final list of colleges:  Robert Morris, Lehigh, Army
Reasons for choosing Robert Morris:  “When I visited Robert Morris, the players were very welcoming. It was like a big family, they were really tight-knit. The coaches are great people. The school itself is really good, and I felt it was the right fit for me.”
What was the progression that led you to competing in lacrosse at the collegiate level?  “When I was really little and first started playing, I wanted to be, of course, hall of fame, but they don’t have that. I wanted to get to the highest level I could achieve. I worked really hard to get to Division I, and thankfully, I did it. It’s always been a goal of mine, and I’m just really thankful I achieved this goal. All my family, friends and coaches have really helped me get to the point where I am today.”
Coach Bruce Garcia says:  “When Liam came to us, he was unassuming, but very quickly you saw that he was 100 percent committed, and very quickly you saw that with his style, his positioning, his speed, he was going to be a Division I athlete in four years. That’s what I saw when I saw him as a freshman. His lacrosse IQ belies his age, and his way of controlling the men that are in front of him – the men in front of him want to play for him, and I think that’s what it all comes down to. They want to play for him. He was all-state last year. He is without a doubt going to be an all-state candidate this year, and I hope with every muscle I have, an All-American, because he deserves to be in that class of athlete at this time.”
(Rosenthal has 336 career saves with a 58 percent save percentage. He has saved 336 of 582 shots.)

Ryan Stout – Sacred Heart University (Lacrosse)
Final list of colleges: Sacred Heart, Mount St. Mary’s, Villanova, Hobart
Reasons for choosing Sacred Heart:  “The campus was absolutely beautiful, and I loved that they have the Jack Welch School of Business, which is a very prestigious program I wanted to go into. They said you can double major in management and marketing, and that’s the field I want to go into right off the bat.
“It was also the way that they ran their lacrosse program. I watched them practice, I was able to meet the teammates, and it was more of an enjoyable fun practice rather than more of a hostile environment. So it was a very friendly, open environment where I could play lacrosse and enjoy myself. I really felt that at Sacred Heart over the other schools that I visited.”
What was the progression that led you to competing in lacrosse at the collegiate level?  “I got into the recruiting process in eighth grade because that’s the way the sport was wired. There were kids that were committing freshman year, so I was just thrown into the mix right way. I had to start thinking about it very early, and I knew from a very early age that I wanted to play lacrosse in college because I had such a love for the sport. It was probably around eighth grade that I knew I was going to play in college.”
Coach Bruce Garcia says:  “Ryan is the epitome of what our program has come to be over the last couple of decades. He is a captain and was a captain last year – he’s well deserving of that. He starts at attack, and he doesn’t have an office on the left side of the field because he’s a left-hander. You will see him on the right side, you’ll see him at X, you’ll see him at midfield, you’ll see him on face-offs. His skill sets are beyond just a left-handed attackman. He will be and should be an All-American this year as an attackman. He’s followed in the footsteps of some pretty strong players coming out of the East program. He comes from a great family.”
(Stout has 96 career goals and 40 career assists.)
