Michael Zelinski Uncommitted All Star
A hardworking, highly coachable senior out of New Jersey is still on the market for playing at the next level. At 6’0″ 185 pounds, right-handed midfielder Michael Zelinski has done it all to prepare for the next level, despite discovering a passion for the game much later than most of his peers. As a freshman in high school, he picked up lacrosse for the first time. In the short time since, Zelinski has put in the time to learn all that he can can, working hard to keep pace with more experienced teammates and competitors.
Zelinski prides himself on being coachable and always willing to learn. He uses his work ethic and ability to take direction not only on the lacrosse field, but to excel in football as well. In the past few seasons, Michael has received honors such as the 2015 JV Lacrosse Most Improved Player along with multiple Varsity Letters in lacrosse and football. He’s stayed on the summer circuit with the South Jersey Shamrocks to find better competition and more reps as he continues to grow as a lacrosse player.
Michael Zelinski According To Coach:
“Dedicated multi-sport athlete (Football/Lacrosse) with great work ethic, passion and eagerness to learn. Strong downhill dodger with good vision. Solid velocity on shot.”
– Bill Keane
This young athlete doesn’t just identify as an athlete, as he has much bigger goals away from sports. Putting his best foot forward in the classroom, Zelinski as become a National Honor Society member, with the ultimate goal of earning a PhD in Physical Therapy. He also takes the time out of his bust schedule to complete a wealth of volunteer work in his community. Too think he takes the time to also work a part-time job too is astounding. A well-rounded young athlete is hard to find, but Zelinki won’t stop until he makes his contribution to a university that will help him grow as he helps those around him.
