After visits to some of the country’s most prestigious schools and being blessed with multiple offers from some of the most successful college lacrosse programs, True Lacrosse member Will De Bord has announced his commitment to attend the United States Air Force Academy. Will, a defenseman for the St. Charles Lacrosse Club and long-time True Lacrosse Club member, will be a part of the 2013 Air Force Academy recruiting class.
For Will, it has been a goal and dream to become a Cadet and have the opportunity to play for the Air Force Academy Falcons. “While I still need to complete the standard application process that our military requires, I am thankful to Coach Seremet for extending me the opportunity to commit to the Air Force Academy Lacrosse Program to further my lacrosse career and most importantly, to contribute to the ideals of the United States Air Force Academy,” stated De Bord. “I am so impressed with the first-class academic platform that the Air Force Academy offers and just want to contribute to the Academy, my teammates and to the lacrosse program in any fashion possible,” added De Bord. Mike Gabel True Lacrosse feels, “with De Bord’s size, speed, lacrosse IQ and work ethic he will be a great asset to Air Force Academy.”
In 2011, De Bord was honored as a member of the National Honor Society, named an NSCLA All-American, named a member of the PEAK 200 All-Star Team, honored as a member of the Brine All-American Team and received his High School team’s “Coaches Award”.
