FC Youth Lacrosse grad going Division I
TribLIVE Sports Videos
Warren Lea, formerly of Crest Drive in O'Hara and currently living in Washington, D.C., has signed a National Letter of Intent to play Division I lacrosse for Robert Morris University as a defenseman.
Warren grew up playing for Fox Chapel's Pittsburgh Youth Lacrosse under the tutelage of Mike Concordia. He attended Kiski Prep in 2009 and 2010 before moving to Washington, D.C. in 2010 and attending St. John's College High School.
“Warren is a great kid,” Concordia said. “He is such a talented athlete that he played every position in middle school-attack, middle, long stick middle, close defense and even goalie.
“We used him wherever we needed him to be successful as a team. Warren has exceptional quickness that separates him from his peers. I am sure he will be a great addition to RMU's very talented team.
“I knew back then that he had D-I potential. His speed and quickness allow him to play at the highest level. I thought that he would play goalie because of his cat-like reaction time.”
Last year, the Colonials went 11-4, including 5-0 in the NEC, before falling to Mt. St. Mary's by 16-15 in overtime in the NEC Tournament. A high point for the Colonials was an early season win over Ohio State, 9-7.
