Kevin Cox (St. Margaret’s) was one of 18 freshmen added to the Air Force Academy men’s lacrosse roster for the 2016-2017 season. The freshman class represents 11 states from across the U.S., including four Colorado natives. Cox is the only Californian amongst the lacrosse freshman.
“We are excited to welcome the class of 2020 to the Air Force Academy,” explained coach Seremet. “This is a well-rounded group that should hit the ground running as a class.”
“They have the potential to push our returning players at every position which should make for an exciting fall season. We are looking forward to working with our new additions this season.”
The 18 freshmen were already in the midst of Air Force Basic Cadet Training at the time of the announcement. Basic Cadet Training began on June 30 and lasted six weeks. Cox’s athletic credentials are listed on the Air Force website as follows:
