Rising sophomore, Adam Blind is making the most of the experience of playing for the UA Midwest Underclass team this weekend.
Olentangy Library HS (OH) goalie is grateful to be selected and to get some exposure during the Underclass tournament.
Adam averaged 7 saves this past season.
The PRLB did a Q&A with Adam and here’s what he had to say:
Peace Report Lax Blog: How does it feel to be selected for the Under Armour Underclass event ?
Blind: It’s a big accomplishment to be selected for UA, being selected amongst the other top players in the Midwest makes me feel that my work is starting to pay off.
PRLB: What’s it mean to you to get some excellent exposure to how you play the game in front of College coaches?
Blind: Being able to play in front of such an array of college coaches puts me on my toes to be playing my best at all times. It also shows the superiority of the Under Armour event overall.
PRLB: How long have you been playing lacrosse?
Blind: I have been playing lacrosse as an attackman for about 9 years now, but this will be year 3 as a goalie.
PRLB: How did Olentangy do this season?
Blind: Liberty finished this season 14 — 6 and lost in the regional finals. We had a 2018 goalie committed to Ohio State, so I only saw a few games.
PRLB: What are you trying to improve on skill wise this summer?
Blind: This summer I was working on vision in the cage; more specifically being able to see the shots immediately as the ball leaves the players head.
PRLB: What kind of sticks do you play with?
Blind: Stx eclipse 2 tied up with grizzly mesh.
PRLB: Name the favorite song your listening to now.
Blind: Song: Runnat by Rory Fresco
PRLB: What’s your favorite movie?
Blind: Movie: Goon
PRLB: In your opinion what’s the best part of your game?
Blind: I think I do pretty well using my voice to direct the defense, along with that, I think my quickness is what sets me apart from others in certain aspects.
PRLB: Has the new recruiting rules made the searching for college process easier for you?
Blind: Personally, no. The new rules put us in a scramble looking for a boarding school with high caliber lacrosse which was a hassle for what we got out of it. Plus I have the confidence that I would’ve committed earlier than junior year, now the stress of committing hangs over my head for years to come.
