Rocky Point High School student Jack Sullivan has given a verbal commitment to play for the Binghamton Bearcats after he graduates. Sullivan who is entering his third varsity season, said he feels really good about being part of the Bearcats team after getting letters from Marquette, Fairfield, Penn, Lehigh and Colgate.

"It seemed like a good fit for myself.  I wanted to be a part of this growing program, which is only going to get better. The  coaches were really nice and were patient with me in my decision," said Sullivan in an interview with LAX Lessons. "And I could see myself going to that school even if I was not playing a sport there."

Sullivan said he is a strong faceoff middie and a good all-around midfield player. He plans on working on his offensive and stick skills over the next couple of months. 

"I would like to thank my parents for always getting me to where I needed to go and getting equipment I needed and always supporting my in my decisions. Also my Express Team coach, Mike Schwalje, for making me a better player," Sullivan said to LAX Lessons. 

"Also Tom and Kathy Palasek for helping me get noticed by colleges and my high school coaches, Mike Bowler  and Chris Nentwich, for giving me the opportunities to show my skills."
