Around the Horn with Evan Lacroix, Methuen football

(Continued)

Did you play with him? “I started the first game (in 2011) vs. Plymouth North and caught 2-point conversion from him. Then I had a really bad hamstring pull. I just tried to keep going. I could barely walk. It lingered until December.”

What was that like? “It was tough. Especially in the summer, people would say, ‘Are you starting, too? It will be Lacroix to Lacroix. Eric was the guy and I just had to watch. What are you going to do?”

How are you doing academically? “I’m right up there. I’m 14th out of about 450. I’m in the History and Spanish honor societies. I won the Dartmouth Book Award.”

Do you play any other sports? “Winter track and baseball. I’m better at baseball (MVC All-Star). That’s my favorite sport. But I work my butt off in all three.”

Are you involved in any other activities? “I’m into JROTC. I’m the S-6. I take care of the website (Google ‘Methuen High ROTC’ to find web page). I was also a committee member for Relay for Life. I try to stay involved with that.”

Are you looking at any schools? “I’m trying to play baseball. I’ve been in contact with WPI, Southern Maine and Wentworth. They are all neck and neck.”

Do you work? “I worked at Market Basket in Salem. I still do it on the weekends.”

Besides your brother, any other athletes in the family? “My dad, David, played soccer in high school at Methuen. He coaches freshman football. My mom, Donna, runs competitively.”

Did you play for your father? “His first year was my freshman year. I was always with the skill players and he was with the line. I’d make fun of him because he was a soccer guy. But he knows a lot now.”
