On Thursday, Chris Feifs and the Vermont Catamounts landed a commitment in the 2022 class out of the Old Dominion State, as junior Paul VI, Va., attackman Carson Boyle announced that he would be taking his talents to Burlington.
Boyle is the second attackman and third overall commitment in the class for the Catamounts, joining Wahconah Regional, Mass., attackman Caden Padelford and Lutheran, Minn., defenseman Joe Ims.
“Vermont has to offer great academics that will set me up for my future career,” Boyle told Lacrosse Bucket. “Also, the town of Burlington gives me plenty of things to do in my downtime. I am a person that likes to spend a lot of time outdoors, with the mountains and lake, I can ski in the winter and go on the lake in the summer.”
Boyle said that the first contact he had with the staff was about three weeks ago and that he has talked to both head coach Chris Feifs and offensive coordinator Jake Bernhardt. “Coach Feifs and Coach Bernhardt are amazing people and coaches. I can not wait to play for them and learn from them in the future.”
While NCAA recruiting is in a dead period, which prohibits in-person recruiting and campus visits, through January 1st, Boyce said that he does plan on taking a trip up to Vermont on his own to check out the campus.
This past season, Boyle helped the Panthers to a 1-1 record before the season was cancelled due to the Coronavirus outbreak. As a freshman at John Champe, Va., in 2019, the attackman tallied 48 points (35G/13A) and helped them to a 14-6 record and VHSL Class 5 semifinal appearance. He said that two of his biggest goals coming into his junior season are to make his teammates better and help lead Paul VI to a WCAC and state title.
