Men's Lacrosse - Sat, Apr. 22, 2017

The Cavaliers' men's lacrosse team recently signed Vermont's Josh Brown to join their incoming freshman class this fall. 

"Josh is a fine young man, whose prowess on the field is matched by excellence in the classroom, as well as top-shelf character. Josh will bring a variety of key assets to the team next year--on and off the field," said head coach Will McMinn. "His well-rounded on-field bank of contributions are expected to include facing off, ground balls and hustle, strong team and individual play on both sides of the ball, and a tremendous positive 'never say die' attitude."

Brown was attending a lacrosse camp at Liberty University when he met Assistant Coach Ethan Kamholtz, a former standout goalie for the Flames as an undergraduate. "I was there visiting and seeing if God was calling me to Liberty and Coach Ethan and I just started talking," said Brown. "He invited me down for a day to practice with the lacrosse team. That's when I felt God's call to go to Montreat."

Brown plays for Mount Mansfield Union High School in Jericho, Vermont, and lives in nearby Westford. In Mount Mansfield's 2017 opener the lefty attackman/middie scored a natural hat trick to power the Crusaders to an 8-2 victory. His parents are Jonathan and Tammy Brown and he has two older brothers (Nathan, David) and one younger (Caleb).  

Brown is a two-sport athlete and was considering attending Pennsylvania's Clarks Summit to play soccer before he felt called to Montreat. He plans to focus on ministry in his college studies.
