Thomas McConvey - Men's Lacrosse - Virginia Cavaliers

2023 – “What a gift to have Thomas join us in Charlottesville for his extra year of collegiate lacrosse, a decision that was helped by his boyhood friend and long-time lacrosse teammate Payton Cormier.  The pair have extensive two-man game experience on the left-hand side, and it will be on full display this season.  Thomas has an exceptional ability to both score goals and to be in the center of the action.  His lacrosse acumen for comprehending situations is elite.  Four fantastic years at Vermont honed his game as a midfielder, a position he will continue to play here.”
