CdM junior Brett Greenlee verbally committed yesterday to play D1 lacrosse at Denver University.
Greenlee has enjoyed a lot of success this season with the Sea Kings who just recently upset JSerra 8-5. In the offseason, Greenlee was elected to play in the High Rollers All-Star game where he showed that he can shut down the best of the best.
Greenlee is one of the most athletic players in the county. The two sport athlete (lacrosse and football) can match feet with the quickest middies and can create game changing turnovers (skip to play #4) all over the field. His field awareness and ability to create offense will lead to success at the next level.
Coach Mix sees a bright future for Greenlee, “Brett is an extremely athletic kid who seems to have a knack for making big plays in big moments of big games. He works hard each day to improve his skills and is learning how to be reliable, solid and consistent. He has the talent and opportunity to develop into a player who can really help DU down the road.”
Just like all recruits, Brett is a student first. Grades also played a big part in his recruitment, “It takes a great deal of dedication and discipline to maintain excellent grades while playing football and lacrosse at a school like Corona Del Mar. Brett has been doing it for two years now. He is developing critical skills at CDM that will enable him to be very successful as a Division I student-athlete.” says Mix
Denver has become a popular destination for Orange County alumni; Erik Adamson (Foothill) and Scott McGowan (St. Margaret’s) are currently playing for the Pioneers this year. Greenlee will join Ryan Harnisch (St. Margaret’s) and Nate Marano (Foothill) in a group of three OC players joining the Pioneers in the Fall of 2015.
