Former Johns Hopkins midfielder Alex Concannon will be playing his final year of college lacrosse at Hofstra. Concannon announced the news on his Instagram on Monday night.
A Syosset, N.Y. native, Concannon has been a mainstay on the Blue Jays’ offense for the past three seasons, appearing in 44 games and starting in 22. Concannon ends his career at Hopkins with 56 career points (31G/25A).
The midfielder had a breakout year in 2019, starting all 16 games and tallying 25 points (18G/8A). He only played in one game in 2020, suffering a season-ending injury against Towson in the Blue Jays’ season opener. Concannon suffered a season-ending injury in the season opener as a freshman in 2016, as well.
Concannon comes into a Hofstra team that looks very promising heading into 2021, with the Pride’s leading scorer Ryan Tierney (21G/14A) coming back for an extra season. They also return their other four top five scorers. The Pride posted a 4-3 record at the time the 2020 season was cut short.
Concannon should be a very nice addition to the Pride’s offense in 2021 and should be, at least, in competition for a starting midfield spot the minute he steps foot in Hempstead.
