Recruit Profile

"I love lacrosse and work hard to be the best player on the field. I have very strong all around skills and can score and assist from all offensive sets."

I've started varsity every game since my freshman year. Our team has made the state playoffs each year and we play in the competitive FCIAC conference. This past season I made All FCIAC conference. I'm equally strong with both hands and will sometimes play midfield if needed. I have one of the fastest shots in our league and I'm excellent at finishing around the goal. I also have an excellent field IQ. My GPA is 3.7 and I take all honors or AP courses. I scored 27 on the ACT exam. I'm a junior deacon at Greenfield Hill Congregational Church. Last July I spent a week rebuilding homes in rural Appalachia and I will do the same this July 2-9. I want to study economics or finance at a school with very strong academics and contribute to a competitive lacrosse team.

Micardo Celicourt
Mar 15, 2016
Gareth is unique player with the ability to create from the outside, off the step-down or on the run. He demonstrates the ability to either run by defenders or over them. His feet, strength and size are tremendous for a player of his stature.
Thomas Cunningham

Gareth is a complete offensive player with the ability to score and to create for others. Currently one of the most accurate and strongest shooters in the program, he is a true offensive threat. His vision/IQ allows for him to see things on the field, others may not.
