What are the specifications a coach would ask for when building the prototype for an ideal long-stick midfielder? First, he would have extensive reach on his checks due to physical attributes, granting him the ability to pressure the opposing ball carrier. Second, the LSM would possess skills with his stick-handling that are unmatched, allowing him to pick up loose-balls in tight quarters and to find the back of the net when he lets his shot fly. Third, solid comprehension of the full package of rides and defensive schemes would make this man a complete defenseman. Larken is only a freshman, but he has already demonstrated to us that he possesses these traits and is prepared to play a big role in 2014...Secondary School Background - Lacrosse: 3 Varsity Letters…Team Captain as Senior…Three-year starter… School record for goals (12), points (32), and ground balls (128) in a year for a defenseman as junior… Received Kalkstein Award for Team's Most Valuable Player as junior (first underclassmen)… All-American as Senior… Press Club Award for most capable male athlete in the school…Phillipian newspaper's male athlete of the year…Football: 1 Varsity Letter… Two-way starter (WR/DB)… School Record for Receiving Yards in Game (237)… led NEPSAC in yards per catch (21.65), All New England Offensive Selection...Hockey: 3 Varsity Letters, Three-year starter.

Why Brown? "Brown provided the best opportunity to pursue my passions both in the classroom and on the field. I believe in what Brown represents, and in the lacrosse program's 'Brown State' mentality."
