Jason Knox has put pen to paper and signed his commitment to attend Hobart College to play NCAA DI lacrosse next fall.
November 8 marked the beginning of the fall signing period when senior student-athletes can sign a national letter of intent, officially committing to an NCAA school.
Jason will trade his red and white Saints jersey for Hobart’s purple and orange. The Geneva, New York, university offers a lacrosse program rich in history, playing its first varsity lacrosse season in 1898.
Jason chose Hobart over about a dozen other schools because, he says, “it felt like home.”
The coaches at Hobart already have plans for Jason. “They want me to play attack,” he says. As a freshman, he is looking forward to making an immediate impact with the team.
It will be more than a year before the Hobart lacrosse season starts for the 2018-19 year, but Jason has plenty of athletic outlets on the go in the meantime. The multi-sport athlete just finished a strong season as a member of the SAC Varsity Football team that reached the CISAA semi-finals. In the spring, he will suit up for the Saints 1st Lacrosse team and will most certainly take on a leadership role.
Jason will spend his summer playing for the Junior A Burlington Chiefs lacrosse team. Then in August, he’ll make his way to Hobart to begin the school season playing lacrosse fall ball.
