Three Nittany Lions Make US Men’s Lacrosse U-19 Roster

There’s hope for the future of Nittany Lion Lacrosse as three players were added to the US Men’s Lacrosse U-19 team. One is a freshman and two are recent commits. The three Long Island natives will also join the Nittany Lion’s assistant coach, Peter Toner, who is also an assistant coach for the U-19 team.

These three players will bring their talent to a team that has a 41-2 all-time international record and hold gold medals in each one of the U-19 world championships to date.

Freshman defender Tommy Wright led Garden City High School to two New York State titles and is a two-time All-American and All-Long Island honoree. He also earned Long Stick Midfielder Player of the Year Nassau County Honors in 2014-15.

Another All-Long Island honoree joining Wright is recent signee and faceoff specialist, Gerard Arceri. Arceri earned Smithtown East’s team MVP in back-to-back Suffolk County Championships. Coach Jeff Tambroni believes that he will be quick to make an impact not just on the 2017 season, but Penn State’s program in the long run.

Joining Arceri in the 2015 signee class is Mac O’Keefe, an attacker out of Syosset, New York. O’Keefe led Syosset to Nassau County and Long Island Class A Championships. In 2014-15, he collected an All-American honorable mention and All-County honors. His ability to find the net and his varied background in box lacrosse made him a dynamic recruit for Tambroni.

We can’t wait to see what their talents will bring not just to Holuba Hall, Penn State’s lacrosse field, and the national team.
