Written on . Posted in .

Lake Highland Prep’s top scorer from the 2012 season, senior Clay Phillips, has made his commitment to play for Boston University.  Although lacrosse has been played at Boston University since at least 1920, the 2013-2014 academic year will be the first year for NCAA D1 lacrosse at the BU.

Phillips has maintained a 4.5 GPA and National Honors Society.  He was a member of the 2012 Under Armour Underclassman All-South team and started on the 2011 LHP State Championship team and was the 2012 leading scorer on the team with 60g and 28a. As if that’s not enough, he also has two seasons of Varsity Golf under his belt.

Clay said, “First and foremost I would like to thank my parents for always supporting me. I would not be where I am today without them.
I would also like to thank my coaches.
-Coach Spaulding has been my coach since I was in 6th grade, and I have learned so much about the game of lacrosse from him. He has supported me through my whole recruiting process and I cannot thank him enough.
-Coach Goldberg, Coach St Laurent (Braveheart), and Coach Robinson(LCO) have all helped me in my recruiting process.”

When asked why he chose to go Boston University he replied, “I am very excited to be a part of building the Boston University lacrosse program. I chose Boston University because of its respected academic program and its location in a great college town. I look forward to playing lacrosse for Coach Polley and Coach Kelleher in BU’s inaugural season.”
