That’s impressive company … All-American, All-American, All-American.
“It’s a great accomplishment, something he should be very proud of knowing the caliber of the players at Yorktown who have gone on to do great things on the lacrosse field,” Carcaterra said tonight. “For me, people have been bringing it up, asking whether it’s a big deal that he’s breaking my record. I was part of three straight championships at Yorktown, and that overshadowed anything that I did individually.”
For most of the season, Interlicchio has had all kinds of company. It hasn’t been easy to score at the pace we all became used to last season.
“Just from a sheer goal-scoring standpoint, Kevin was a lot more potent earlier on in his career,” said Carcaterra, who’s teaching fourth grade at Bedford Village Elementary School and is providing analysis for ESPNU and MSG. “He had the ability to just go out and play lacrosse before all of the gimmick defenses. He’ll never see those in college. If you do something like that on the collegiate level the other five guys will kill you.”
