Men's Lacrosse Tabs Knoxville Defenseman Will McFarland
FARRAGUT, Tenn. - William McFarland, a senior from Farragut High School in Farragut, Tenn., signed his scholarship papers to play lacrosse at Asbury for its inaugural season in 2014-15 on Tuesday. McFarland is expected to be an anchor in the Eagles' defensive end, providing athleticism and size in front of the goal.
"It definitely feels great to get this done for Will," head coach Josh Stewart said. "I got to see Will play a little on his visit in October and I loved what I saw out of him. Farragut has some good players and it's an honor to have one be a part of the foundational pieces for this program."
McFarland was being recruited by several different schools before deciding to attend Asbury to become an Eagle.
"I really feel that Will is going to be a great fit for the way I want this team to play," Stewart added.
Asbury men’s lacrosse continues to recruit for the 2014-15 season. The program has cast a wide net, already signing or securing commitments from recruits in Kentucky, Florida, Ohio, California, Georgia, and Indiana.
