After a long long summer of hard work and lots of thinking i finally decided to do it. Make the jump from division two to division one. For the past two years i played lacrosse at cw post. Through those two years we went 6-16. But last season i still ended up making all american, and the opportunity to move up to a division one team was clearly available to me. The opportunity of a lifetime. To make this very long story short, i left post, gave up a 16 thousand dollar scholarship to try and walk on to Hofstra. Alot of you guys here dont know college lacrosse, but hofstra is similar to an ohio state, a michigan, a michigan state, or tennesee, etc in college football.
Today was our first meeting…63 guys trying out for 40 spots. Only two guys from last years team graduated, so 38 are back. The rest are recruited freshman and transfers. The tryout is next week. This is going to be hell, but i feel i am prepared enough to go out and earn one of those 40 spots.
I’ll cut the post short here, if anyone wants to comment on my stupidity of giving up a huge scholarship for just a try out haha or wants to give some tips of nutrition/training for the next week and during try outs it would be awesome to discuss. Hope some peopel are interested. Been a life long dream to play at hofstra, been going to watch them since the third grade, and now my chance is here.
On a side note it seems like i am transfering all because of lacrosse, but the phys ed program is better at hofstra than post, and alot of other things came into play.
