Senior Tucker Levinson signs to North Greenville University to continue playing lacrosse in college.

On February 7, Tucker Levinson officially signed to continue his athletic and academic career at North Greenville University (NGU).

Levinson is going to be playing Division II lacrosse at NGU. He believes that high school has prepared him well for the balance of academics and athletics he will face when he moves onto the next level.

Levinson feels that coaches at Linganore High School (LHS) have pushed him to be the best he can be. He is confident that playing at a higher level will not be much of a challenge for him compared to high school lacrosse.

“Linganore lacrosse is so intense with all of their coaches, that it really sets these kids up for success when they move on,” said Heidi Levinson, his mother.

The coaches at NGU watched Levinson’s lacrosse film and welcomed him with open arms onto their campus. They saw Levinson as a perfect fit for their team.

Richard Thompson is one of Linganore’s Boys Lacrosse coaches. Thompson saw Levinson as the defensive player of the year. He described Levinson as someone who always puts in the work at every practice — no matter the circumstances.

“He stays focused all the time. [He’s] always ready,” Thompson said.

Levinson has been playing lacrosse for 12 years. Besides playing for Linganore, he began playing lacrosse for Lax Factory, then 3D Maryland, and finally Team Maryland.

Levinson visited other campuses, but nothing compared to the overall atmosphere of North Greenville. The sports facility and the business building are the two things most appealing to Levinson about NGU. He plans on majoring in the college of business.

Levinson got in contact with North Greenville’s lacrosse coach through a sporting recruitment app. He went and visited NGU to meet the coach, and Levinson instantly fell in love with the campus and the environment within the university.

Levinson’s mother, Heidi Levinson, is his number one supporter. She believes that Levinson will fit right into his new school and team. His mother thinks that he is ready to move onto new things and he will not have trouble adjusting to NGU.

“I think it’s time. I’ll miss him a lot, but I definitely think, like, he’s ready for new surroundings and, you know, a new place, new experiences.” said Heidi Levinson.
