The 6-foot-1, 160 pound defenseman/LSM out of St. Thomas Aquinas (NH) is aiming towards a big junior year while also garnering interest from some top tier schools at the Division III ranks.
As a takeaway defenseman Henry De Tolla is looking to have a big year as a junior at St. Thomas Aquinas (NH). De Tolla has been working hard over the offseason to get bigger and better both on and off the field.
“I spent the whole offseason putting on mass and working on checks. Also I continue to hit the books real hard, consistently making high honors.”
When asked about his goals this season De Tolla said that he wants to make first team all-state as well as be an Academic All-American. Team wise, De Tolla and the Saints are gunning for a state championship, and they should be a contender with a very strong team all around. De Tolla said, “Anything less than a final four bid would be a disappointment.”
De Tolla and the St. Thomas Aquinas Saints will start their 2019 season on April 9th against Oyster River.
As a member of the 2020 class De Tolla was able to start talking to college coaches on September 1st of 2018. De Tolla was one of 88 players to attend and showcase his talents at Inside Lacrosse’s Midnight Mania event at Delaware Stadium on September 1st.
Since that September 1st date the defenseman/LSM has garnered interest from some of the top Division III schools in the country. De Tolla stated that Salisbury, Denision, Ohio Wesleyan, Wheaton, Franklin & Marshall, Bowdoin, and Salisbury are some of the schools that have been talking to him.
Out of the schools that have been talking to him, De Tolla has taken a visit to Bowdoin and Ohio Wesleyan so far. De Tolla stated that he feels he has some time before he will make a decision on where to commit.
