PEACE LACROSSE BLOG: What made you choose this school?
BRODY COLEMAN: Yale is the best of both worlds. A top 5 lacrosse program with incredible coaches. Along with a world class education. The culture at Yale is different from any other school, nobody practices, plays, or trains harder. I’m so excited to be a part of it!

PLB: How has the COVID-19 Pandemic affected you?
BC: It made me focus more on bettering myself. I trained, and lifted weights as much as I could. I also tried to focus on the weak points of my game and better them.
PLB: How would you describe your recruiting process?
BC: I went into the process in no hurry to make a decision. I was fortunate to have a bunch of schools teach out to me on September 1st, and as the week went on I realized this process was going to be quicker than I had imagined. When I was eventually offered by Yale was easy to make my decision as I knew it was the best fit for me.
PLB: What kind of stick do you play with?
BC: ECD Rebel with Heromesh on a Mission Blank shaft from Maverik. Mid-low pocket with a tight channel and one shooter. I typically use a black out stick but just recently have been mixing in a white head on a silver shaft.
