Lee Boshes is a football player for Northwestern.
Now, you may be asking yourself “why is a football player from Northwestern being mentioned on a blog about lacrosse in the state of Michigan?” The answer is that he was a Michigan lacrosse player last year.
Reading ESPN’s Big Ten Blog yesterday, I happened across a link that mentioned Michigan lacrosse, and thought it was an interesting connection. When Boshes decided to leave Michigan, he made a training video to send to Ivy League football coaches (despite never having played organized football), and it ended up getting to Northwestern’s staff, who offered him a preferred walkon spot as a transfer student.
For the record, Boshes got into four games in 2010, his freshman year as a Michigan lacrosse player, registering 3 ground balls.
