'20 Fair Commits to Drew University

By Bill Keane 11/14/2019, 7:00am EST

Congrats are in order for 2020 Attack Connor Fair on his recent commitment to NCAA DIII  Drew University.   Connor plans on studying Computer Science while competing on the Men's Lacrosse Team.   Drew is located in Madison, NJ and competes in the Landmark Conference against teams such as the University of Scranton, Elizabethtown and Catholic.  

Connor is a fearless, athletic attackman with a nose for the goal.   He is a threat to score from close and far and distributes the ball well.  He has the versatility to run attack or mid which will make him a nice asset in college.   Connor is a great teammate and very coachable young man. 

Connor has played for the Shamrocks 2020  team for the past 7 years and was a  focal point at attack.   His commitment, drive and fearlessness will help him become an invaluable asset to the Drew University Men's Lacrosse Team and will help them continue on their path to excellence.
