St. Andrews Adds 10 Recruits for the 2015 Lacrosse Season

Laurinburg, NC - The St. Andrews University lacrosse team and head coach Joe Wilson have announced the signing of 10 new athletes for the 2015 season. They include 8 states and Canada as well as a former SAU athlete coming back to school.

First up are twin defenders from Jacksonville, FL and Providence HS, Adrian and Julian Cinca. Recognized as a hard worker and team player by his coaches, Adrian is a leader and relentless on the lacrosse field. Off the field, Adrian helped the team by filming JV games. Cinca also worked as a lighting and sound technician for school performances.

He chose St. Andrews because, "they have a pre-engineering program. I plan to study aerospace engineering. St. Andrews is also giving me the opportunity to play college lacrosse with my brother. That is something I valued quite a bit in high school."

Adrian's brother Julian was a multi-sport athlete in high school and participated in football, wrestling, soccer and lacrosse, having been recognized for outstanding conduct, sportsmanship, and athleticism on the field. In between sports, Julian also took part in drama and choir, performing in well-known and recognizable venues and plays.

"I have come to St. Andrews to make a difference on the lacrosse field. I am here to contribute to making our program a strong one and be part of a team that works towards championships. I love the sport and can't wait for the season to begin."

Next up is Brett Ellerson, a 6-1 midfielder from Berkshire, NY. Both a football and lacrosse player in high school, Ellerson was a 3-year Varsity lacrosse player and starter. Ellerson earned 2nd Team All-American his senior year as a Face-off Midfielder and tallied 28 goals and 15 assists last season.

Ellerson on choosing St. Andrews: "I decided on St. Andrews for their Pre-Law program and the opportunity to play lacrosse."

Chandler Knight is a 6-1 defender from Bremerton, WA. Knight was awarded second team All-League out of both divisions his senior year. An athlete with good ground ball and stick skills, Knight is looking forward to competing for playing time early.

Knight on why he chose St. Andrews: "I chose St. Andrews University because it was far away from home giving me a better life experience, along with an opportunity to grow as an individual. Also I chose St. Andrews because of the great education I will be receiving."

Jason Lattof is a 6-0 attackman from Rockford, MA who was a multi-sport athlete in high school.

Playing at one of the top football programs in Massachusetts, Jason was a 3 time letter winner, captain, winner of the Tony Marino Award for top lineman, and Gloucester High's Fisherman Award for Toughness, Leadership, Dedication/Commitment and overall play. As a Lacrosse player Lattof was an All Conference player, 4 year letter recipient, Captain, leading goal scorer his Sophomore and Junior year and tied for leading scorer his Senior year.

Lattof on becoming a Knight: "After visiting many schools I thought St Andrews offered me the opportunity to grow as a student an athlete in a positive environment. I really liked the facilities and found the staff to be very friendly willing to go out of their way to offer helps any way they could. After my visit I could see myself fitting in and excelling at St Andrews."

The lacrosse program looked like a great opportunity to grow as an athlete in a positive setting that promoted teamwork and hard work. I felt like the coaches offered me and my future teammates an opportunity to compete every day to improve ourselves as individuals but more importantly to build and improve as team with a goal to be the best in the nation. I thought the coaches were down to earth and were trying not only to build a strong team, but build a team that is based on respect, hard work, sportsmanship and building something that was not only a team but a family."
