Recruit Profiles

VESTAL, N.Y.-- The Binghamton men's lacrosse program has announced the signing of six high school seniors. All of them will join the Bearcats as freshman for the 2009 season.

From Jamesville-Dewitt High School comes midfielder John Clark (Fayetteville, N.Y.) and midfield/attack Nick Marshall (Jamesville, N.Y.). Marshall's brother Nick is currently a freshman on the Binghamton squad.

Chris Cook (Vestal, N.Y.) is a midfielder from nearby Vestal High Schol. He joins his older brother Andy, who was named the the America East Conference All-Rookie team last spring.

Ben Waldron (Syracuse, N.Y.) is a defenseman from perennial powerhouse West Genesee. He was named second-team All-Central New York by the Syracuse Post Standard as a senior.

Ryan Button is a defender from Auburn High School. He was a co-captain of the lacrosse team as a junior and was named first-team all-league.

Chris Latino (South Salem, N.J.) is a goalie from John Jay-Crossing Riving High School. He was a member of the 2007 state runner up squad.

"I can't be any happier with this group of elite student athletes," head coach Ed Stephenson said. "All of these young men have had numerous successes on and off of the field. They have had garnered many accolades and awards for their academic and athletic achievements. However, more important than any of these awards, is the fact that these young men are of the highest character. This, above all else, makes us a better team."
