Patrick Coggins signed his National Letter of Intent on November 8th to play lacrosse at Wheeling Jesuit University.

Coggins has been playing lacrosse through middle and high school, so transitioning to college lacrosse was the natural next step. In 2017, Coggins received a Honorable Mention in Frederick All-County Boys Lacrosse and in CMC Spires Division. He was also a part of last year’s team that won the second straight CMC title.

Coach Swoyer said, “Patrick plays with the toughness and tenacity of a great Linganore team player. His strength of character serves him on and off the field, in the classroom and leading on the turf.”

Coach Trey Wilkes has been coaching Coggins through his time in club lacrosse and spoke about Patrick’s character and playing strengths on and off the field.

Along with Wheeling Jesuit, his recruiting profile on Field Level was followed by 10 college teams from the divisions NCAA D3 (5), NCAA D2 (2), NJCAA D2 (1), NAIA (1) , and one D1 school.

Even though he received many offers, he decided to wear the red and gold of the Wheeling Jesuit Cardinals. Coggins said, “Wheeling Jesuit just fit all of the criteria that I was looking for; I loved the campus atmosphere, and it has strong programs in engineering and business, which is what I want to major in.”

Coggins said that when he visited, the campus felt like home. He also has a family connection to the school since his sister is currently attending the college.

“We let him make most of the decision and he asked us a few questions. We were involved as he wanted us to be,” said Sean Coggins, Patrick’s father.

Sean Coggins said, “I’ll miss not seeing him on a daily basis when he leaves for college but I want him to go have fun! Meet a bunch of new people and have a blast.“

“He is a great player and they’ve got a great kid going to Wheeling Jesuit,” said Coach Conner.
