    How can I be recruited for football or lacrosse for USMA. The rest of my resume is fairly impressive, I think i would certainly be accepted to USMA if I was recruited. I played varsity football and lacrosse as a freshman. 2014 Lacrosse State Champion. Should I contact a coach? If so, how and when? I just finished my freshman year.

    STATS:

    40 yard dash: 4.8 secs
    Pro Shuttle: 4.32 secs
    Weight: 190 lbs
    Height: 6 foot 0 inches
    Bench Press: 235 lbs
    Squat: 315 lbs
    Power Clean: 205 lbs

    If you are from Kentucky, might be harder to get recruited for lacrosse.

    Two general routes to get recruited for lacrosse

    - Connection: you know someone that knows someone at Army Lacrosse. This is contingent upon you and your connection's credential - i.e. A powerhouse high school/club coach where they always have many Div I commits.
    - Being at lacrosse tournaments/camps where Army Lacrosse coaches go to recruit.

    Harder, but certainly not impossible. The 2014 Army lacrosse roster included players from several states not typically associated with lacrosse -- Arizona, California, Georgia, Illinois, Texas.

    tug_boat's link is a great start

    Harder, but not impossible. With DI hotbed lax programs going way overboard with frosh and soph early commits many sage more normal programs like Army have a smaller HS pool to recruit from so they are casting a wider net. CA 2014 has over three dozen DI commits so it's no longer NY, MD, NJ and PA anymore.
    St. Xavier? Why not ask Roshkowski - he's a DI commit and your teammate. Or ask the alumnus Schmitt who was named college DI All American. St. Xavier's national computer ranking, which sometimes is garbage-in-garbage-out, is higher than one HS team I know well that has 12 DI level players on it, excluding underclassmen.
    With lacrosse your club team is more important than your HS team, even more so from KY. Follow the previous posts and contact the coach. Good luck.

    One additional suggestion: Army Head Coach Joe Alberici works some summer lacrosse camps and there's an Army lacrosse camp too. Attending a camp can be a good way to get noticed if you are a high skill player. If you do go to a camp, you can contact the Army coaches to say "I will be at Camp X and hope to meet you while I am there" and hopefully they'll look out for you.
