'20 Paranzino Commits to The College of Wooster

By Bill Keane 01/04/2020, 3:00pm EST

Congrats are in order for 2020 Midfielder Jimmy Paranzino on his recent commitment to NCAA DIII The College of Wooster.   Wooster is located in Wooster, Ohio and competes in the North Coast Atlantic Conference against teams such as Denison, Oberlin and Wittenburg.   Wooster is a strong liberal arts college with a notable academic ranking.

Jimmy is an intelligent and determined student- athlete.  He is a strong two- way middie that often does the little things that most players shy away from.  His ability to dodge, shoot and score and also play strong individual and team defense will make him a nice addition for the Fighting Scots. 

Jimmy has played for the Shamrocks 2020  team for the past 2 years and was a very strong midfielder for a talented 2020 team.   His athleticism,  commitment and tenacity will help him become an invaluable asset to The College of Wooster  Men's Lacrosse Team and will help them continue on their path to excellence.  

In the spring, Jimmy plays for Woodstown High School.

Once again, congrats to Jimmy and his family!

 Antonio has played for the Shamrocks for the past 6 years and is a leader on a strong defensive unit.  Antonio is an athletic goalie who is known to come up with the big save.   He is a passionate goalie with strong mechanics and excellent command.  There is no doubt that Antonio will make an impact at Shenandoah as the build towards a championship in the ODAC.
