Colorado College Lacrosse Adds 12 Newcomers for 2011

"George is very big, very athletic and very aggressive," Van Arsdale said. "We think he'll bring a nice physical presence to the defensive end of the field. PJ also is very athletic and aggressive, and has good skills. Scott moves very well and he's going to be a great one-on-one stopper."

In addition to being a four-year starter in lacrosse, Zach Steedman was an all-league linebacker at Puyallup (Wash.) High School. He posted a .650 saves percentage and scored three goals during his senior season.

"Zach is a great stopper, but also is very active out of the cage," said Van Arsdale, a former goalie. "He has quick hands and I think he'll compete with our returners for playing time right away."

The CC coaching staff is confident the incoming class will not only contribute in games, but that they also will make the team better on a daily basis by increasing the level of competition on the practice field.

"The majority of these players are going to get a chance to help us on game day right off the bat," Van Arsdale said. "This group also will bring more competition to practice. The more we can compete in practice, the better we're going to be when we compete in games."
