2016 Kings Black close defenseman Stevan Kriss has committed to play at Division I Furman University in Greenville, SC. Kriss will join the Paladins program in their third season of lacrosse and will be coached by current Team USA Head Coach Richie Meade. Kriss, a 6'1" 180 pound defender has been a leader for Kings Black and has played an instrumental role in our success against some of the top club programs in the country.
Stevan was named first team all-state as a sophomore and as a captain lead Lexington Catholic to their first state championship. He recorded 93 caused turnovers and 88 ground balls including setting a school single game record twice with 10CTs in a game. He was also named an All-Star at the Great Lakes Games, East Coast Lacrosse Camp and played with Team Indiana at the Brine All-American National Lacrosse Classic.
Matt Campbell, current Head Coach at Lexington Catholic HS states, "Furman is getting a phenomenal player, leader, and student in Stevan. He works hard on and off the field and has earned the opportunity to compete at the highest level. He is arguably the best defenseman in the state and will play a vital role in our efforts to repeat as State Champions this season. With another two HS season to further improve, I have no doubts Stevan will excel at the Division I level."
