1.  Why did you decide to sign with Susquehanna University?

Susquehanna provided a science program that fit my learning preferences. Along with being a liberal arts school, I felt at home on the campus. From the lacrosse perspective, I like the coaching staff and I agree with Coach Moan’s philosophy and goals for the lacrosse program.

2. Describe the excitement you feel about becoming a college student-athlete?

It has been a goal of mine to play lacrosse at the collegiate level since my freshman year, and now that it is finally achieved it’s the best feeling in the world.

3. What advice would you give to other athletes looking to get recruited?

Consider all your options and make sure to contact the schools you are interested in, as well as make as many visits as you can.

4. Who has been the biggest influence in your sports career and why?

Tim Coyne would be the biggest influence for me. I remember watching him play in the varsity games when I was just in middle school and loved his style of defense. He was also the defensive captain for my freshman and sophomore years and helped me transition into the varsity team. He was never one to get down on you, he only wanted to make you better, and that truly taught me a lot.

5. What would you like to accomplish during your college sports career?

I would like to help Susquehanna win the Landmark Conference and earn our first bid into the NCAA tournament. For myself, I want to earn a starting spot at some point in my career and represent Minnesota the best I can.

1.  Why did you decide to sign with Piedmont College?

From the beginning in my college selection process, I wanted to go to a school that would allow me to play lacrosse, but also give me the best education I could get. Piedmont wasn’t even on my original list, but a few emails were shared and before I knew it, they came from Georgia all the way to New Hampshire to see me play. After realizing that they were interested in me, I looked at the school in-depth and realized that it would be a perfect fit for me.

2. Describe the excitement you feel about becoming a college student-athlete?

Unbelievable. I never thought I would ever get to this point in my lacrosse career. I always looked at collegiate athletes as these majestic, superior players and when I got my first email from a college coach, I realized that I was among those elite players. Being able to say that you’re playing college lacrosse is literally one of the coolest things ever.

3. What advice would you give to other athletes looking to get recruited?

My advice would be to not get discouraged. I know it may sound cliché, but it’s true. Many underclassmen in high school don’t realize that they are not a top priority to a college recruiter. They are looking for players who will be able to help them as soon as possible. I remember playing my freshman year for a summer team and all of the older players were being talked to by recruiters but I wasn’t. I talked to my coach and he told me my time will come, and sure enough, it did. Continue to work hard even when you’re younger; because even if a coach doesn’t come up and talk to you, you might still be on his list of future recruits.

4. Who has been the biggest influence in your sports career and why?

Hands down my dad. He has always been there throughout every sport I played, whether I liked it or not. He believes that there is always room for improvement. Yeah, the pressure gets to me sometimes, but in the end I understand that he is helping me and that’s what keeps me going. He is a great mentor and a huge motivator. He was definitely a big part of me getting scouted.

5. What would you like to accomplish during your college sports career?

By the end of my college career, I would like to be able to look back at all four years and feel accomplished. I want to know that I made an impact on my team, whether I was the leading scorer, the leading feeder, or the kid on the team with the most spirit. Regardless, I want to leave college, knowing that I will be missed.

We shared La Costa Canyon Lacrosse player, Alex Pardieu’s recruitment journey here. As part of catching up with Alex, SportsForce had a few questions for his coach, LCC boys varsity coach, Dallas Hartley. See what Dallas had to say about Alex, the FSU commit, below.

1.    How would you describe Alex on the field (strengths, playing style, etc.)?

Alex hustles and his game translates well to full field situations.  He can break down a defense and get his hands free for a shot or to get the offense moving.  He plays great team defense on and off the ball.  And he is great in transition where his speed really shows.
2.    How would you describe Alex off the field (academics, leadership, etc.)?

Well mannered and easy going.  Has a lot of friends and surrounds himself with good people who know their academics are the key to their future.

3.    How do you think Alex will help a team at the college level (what should a college coach expect)?

Alex brings a strong work ethic, an infectious good attitude, and he wants to get better.  He is very coachable.
4.    How do you think Alex will develop over the next few years as a lacrosse player?

He has enormous potential.  He will be one of the best players on his team and demand respect.  Speed, team play, and the intangibles translate well to the next level.

5.    Any final thoughts about Alex?
Pleasure to coach a kid who wants to be better every day.
