Chase Yager - Men's Lacrosse - Virginia Cavaliers

2024 – “Chase has been a startling addition to our program. We needed a tenacious on-ball short-stick defender and voila, he appeared. He is one tough competitor, and getting past him is an achievement. The speed Chase possesses creates scoring chances, furthering the value he adds to our team. Have you seen this guy in the weight room? Astounding is one of the words that comes to mind. The amount of weight he is driving does not seem possible. Chase has smoothly adapted to our locker room and is already an integral part of our defense.”
