Los Alamos High School senior Alex Geyer has signed a letter of intent to play lacrosse for William Penn University in Oskaloosa, Iowa, the home of the Statesmen.
On hand for the signing Friday afternoon were William Penn lacrosse head coach Luke Christiansen and the Los Alamos team coach James Miller as well as Geyer’s friend and former teammate Peter Janke who currently plays for Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas.
Geyer and his parents, Bob and Leslie Geyer, are excited and thankful for his selection to play for the William Penn team.
In July, Geyer attended the Legends Western Freakshow in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he played before NCAA coaches across all levels. He also participated in a series of positional and team clinics.
Not long after he returned to Los Alamos, he received an email from Coach Christiansen notifying him that William Penn was interested in having him play for their team. Geyer later traveled to Iowa where he met team and toured the campus.
Geyer, who was elected captain of the Los Alamos team as a junior last year, is known for his dedication to the team and the local lacrosse program.
