Leesburg, VA (October 26, 2015) – Loudoun County High School senior attack Kevin Rogers has committed to play lacrosse for Lynchburg College beginning the 2016-2017 academic school year.
“After a crazy, but fun recruiting experience, I was both proud and happy to commit to Lynchburg in July, said Rogers. Going into my senior year it’s a great feeling knowing where I will be going to college.”
Lynchburg College has acquired a reputation as an institution that offers quality educational opportunities while building the character and leadership ability of its students. Located in the eastern foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Lynchburg, Virginia, LC offers 39 undergraduate majors, 52 minors, 13 pre-professional programs, and 14 graduate degrees. U.S. News & World Report ranked LC in the top tier of southern colleges and universities offering a full range of undergraduate and master’s degree programs in the “Best Regional Universities” category.
“The factors that went into my decision to commit to Lynchburg were positioning to compete for a lacrosse national championship, the coaches, academics and school size, said Rogers. I hope to contribute as much as I can during my first year. Working hard and going into the season with the right mindset will pay off.”
Rogers’ head lacrosse coach will be Steve Koudelka. Coach Koudelka has established the Lynchburg College men’s lacrosse program as a national powerhouse in his 19 seasons on the sidelines. During his tenure, Koudelka has recorded an overall record of 234-95, including 17-straight winning seasons. Lynchburg has advanced into the NCAA Tournament in each of the last four seasons.

LC won four tournament games en route to the finals and had a 19-game winning streak. Koudelka was named the All-State Coach of the Year for his efforts.
In his 13-years playing lacrosse, Rogers shared that some of his fondest memories include playing in the state championship game his sophomore year of high school and getting to play with both his younger and older brothers for 2-years. He has also collected multiple honors during that time: 2x First Team All-District; 2nd Team All-Region; King of the Hill, Brine National Team and Wavelax All-Star; and Under Armour Top 44 selection.
