According to Merrimack College head coach Mike Morgan, there are three attributes a smaller lacrosse player such as Sean Black needs to be successful.
"When you’re going to recruit a guy who’s 5-7, he better be strong, he better be athletic and he better be skilled," Morgan said. "We thought Sean was all three of them."
It turns out Morgan and his staff were right on the money, as Black (Cheshire, Conn.) has exploded onto the Division 2 lacrosse scene. The attacker’s 38 assists and 64 points lead the Northeast-10, and he’s won the conference Rookie of the Week award five times.
