212 player commits to Air Force

Submitted by Christa Graff,

Alec Meyer, junior attackman for Juan Diego High School and 212 Select, has committed to play for the NCAA Division-I U.S. Air Force Academy.

Meyer had a tremendous sophomore year as Utah’s second leading scorer, until a hip strain caused him to miss the last portion of the season. 212 Lacrosse sat down with Meyer for a little question-and-answer session recently.

Q: Why did you choose this school?

A: I chose the Air Force Academy because it is one of the best schools in the country, with an outstanding academic reputation and an extremely talented lacrosse team at the Division 1 level with superb athletic facilities. The Air Force Academy will provide me with the opportunity of a lifetime.

Q: What are your thoughts on this past high school lacrosse season/your team’s outlook for next season?

A: This past season was a struggle. Being injured for the last half of the season was very difficult for me, but not being able to play has changed my view on the game of lacrosse. I never take any shift for granted and I treat every game and practice as if it’s my last. I am very excited for the contributions that I can make to the Juan Diego lacrosse program. I am working to become complete player, not one dimensional; a player that can do everything. I am hoping to help lead my team to a state championship this year.

Q: Who would you like to thank?

A: I would like to thank Coach Wilson and Coach Serment on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play lacrosse and go to school at one of the best schools in the country. I would like to thank my coach, mentor and friend Mike Acee, for without him, none of this would be possible. Mike took my game to the next level, without him I would not be the player I am today. Lastly I would like to thank my family, in particular my mother and father for supporting me, getting me to every game, practice, camp and tournament and for pushing me to be the best I could possibly be.

"Alec has showed a consistent focus to improve on and off the field," Acee said. "He’s a winner. We are thrilled for the entire Meyer family."

Meyer is the 18th 212 Lacrosse player to commit to a Division 1 program in the last three years.
