Florida Atlantic University has officially received a commitment from Marjory Stoneman Douglas’ star lacrosse player, Darren Edenbaum.
“It feels amazing to finally be committed,” Edenbaum said. “After all the years of playing lacrosse, the hard work paid off.”
Edenbaum, a senior at MSD, started playing lacrosse when he was four and has been on four teams, including the Redhawks, Team 91 Florida, Stealth Lacrosse, and three years on the varsity team.
In his high school career, Edenbaum has scored 142 goals, including 84 during his junior season, which set a school record. The Eagles have also won 20 during those three, and says he chose FAU because he felt like it was the perfect place for him.
“After touring and attending some of their practices, I loved what I saw, and I knew right away that FAU was home,” Edenbaum added.
The senior will still have one head left on the varsity lacrosse team and hopes to improve on his weak side dodges, field IQ, and defense before going to play for the Owls.
