Two Broad Run Standouts Commit

Broad Run senior Andy Londos has verbally committed to attend Mount Saint Mary’s University next fall, where he plans to continue his lacrosse career. Londos was a leader on Broad Run’s 2009 lacrosse team that won the Dulles District and Region II championships. The Spartans finished the season with their first ever trip to the Virginia Final Four after beating Loudoun Valley in the first round of the state playoffs. Londos was a leading scorer on the team with 88 points (49 goals and 39 assists). He also contributed as a team leader in many ways. Londos was instrumental in key Broad Run wins including scoring the winning goal with six seconds left in the Dulles District Championship win against Dominion.

"Andy is a leader with his play on the field," former Broad Run lacrosse head coach Phill Truiett said. "He is a coachable individual that has the potential to be a great college player. I look forward to seeing him mature at that level.”

Mount Saint Mary’s University, located in Emmitsburg, MD, competes in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference with teams that include Providence, Saint Joseph's, and Siena. The Mount also plays out of league contests against Virginia, Navy, Georgetown, and Johns Hopkins.

“My staff and I reviewed Andy's ability this summer and were very pleased with his size, quickness, and footwork," said Mount Saint Mary’s lacrosse head coach Tom Gravante. "He has great vision and sees the field well, something very important at the D-1 level as the ball moves much quicker.

“Athletically, he's solid and I feel his best and strongest games are in his future here when he gains strength. None the less, we are very excited about his verbal commitment to attend MSMU next Fall.”

Flemming Commits to Syracuse
Three weeks ago I reported that Broad Run senior wide receiver Adrian Flemming was planning on committing to Syracuse when he visited the New York university the following day. He was true to his word, verbally committing to coach Doug Marrone and I was finally able to catch up with him following last Friday's win at Dominion.

"I liked the sense of community up there and the coaching staff really made me feel welcome and at home," Flemming said.

A key contributor in last year's state championship run, the 6-4, 210-pound receiver has 12 catches for 197 yards and seven touchdowns through seven games. He's also contributed at outside linebacker and in the return game.

Flemming suffered a hip pointer early in Friday's game and did not return, but said he should be ready for this week's contest against Freedom - which was just moved to Monday due to the weather.
