(July 24, 2013) – Potomac Falls High School senior Ryan Lesane has committed to play men’s soccer at the United States Coast Guard Academy starting in 2014-15.
The 6-foot-2 Lesane is a versatile talent who can play at both forward and center back, and is a former goalie.
Lesane starting talking to the NCAA Division III program’s coaching staff about a year ago and has always had an interest in serving his country after college. Lesane was sold on attending and playing at the academy after spending a week with the team and coach at a camp.
Lesane helped the Panthers to a second place finish in the Dulles District regular-season, just a year after the program failed to advance to the district tournament.
He is looking forward to his senior year at Potomac Falls and helping his travel soccer team, the Herndon Storm, now that he has made his college decision early.
The Coast Guard Academy went 13-6-2 last year and finished second in the NEWMAC regular season and the Bears were ECAC New England champions.
