Last week the Springfield Kings high school lacrosse team (Springfield, MO) had its second senior in 2 years sign a Letter of Intent to play college ball. Senior Defender Colin Bishop, a 4 year starter for the squad, signed his Letter of Intent to play for the Eagles of Robert Morris University (IL).
“He’s just a real hard worker, shows up everyday at practice trying to do his best,” said Springfield Head Coach Brian McCann, “We’re just real proud of everything he’s been able to accomplish.”
When asked about Bishop, RMU Head Coach Drew Stevenson had this to say:
“We are very excited to have Colin become an Eagle as he is a great young man whom will perform admirably in the classroom as well as on the field. He is a strong, quick defender, capable of playing both close and long stick midfielder. He will be a great addition to our team chemistry as well as helping develop our clearing and transition game in the up tempo style we like to play.”
Based in Chicago, Illinois, Robert Morris has an undergraduate enrollment of 7,000 and offers 17 different “fields of study.” Robert Morris fielded a men’s lacrosse team for the first time in 2013. The Eagles compete in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), while their lacrosse team competes in the Great Rivers Lacrosse Conference of the Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association.
