RANDOLPH, NJ- Randolph senior lacrosse player Wyatt Todd will be taking his talents down south next season, having committed to play Division II ball at Rollins College in Florida.
Todd showed promise early on in his RHS career, getting on the varsity field for a few games as a freshman, which is typically difficult to do. As a sophomore, Todd became a starter and has been a key component to the varsity squad for the past two seasons. As a junior Todd had 6 goals and 2 assists.
Playing mostly long stick midfield, Todd lines up on the faceoff wing and sometimes takes faceoffs himself. The Long Stick Middie is generally manned by one of the more athletic and versitile players on the team. He is often is called on to shadow the other teams best offensive player, but also must be able to advance the ball to create transition offense and fast break opportunities. Being strong and proficient in scooping up ground balls is a necessity of the position as well.
TAP into Randolph asked Todd the following questions:
