DeJohn faces old program when St. John’s meets Syracuse

first_img Published on March 6, 2014 at 12:08 am Contact Paul: [email protected] | @pschweds As a kid growing up in Syracuse, N.Y., Eric DeJohn always wanted to play college lacrosse for Syracuse.And in 2012, he got that opportunity. DeJohn came to his dream school, only to redshirt his freshman year before not seeing the field for a single minute as a redshirt freshman.It was then that DeJohn decided to seek a new beginning. At the conclusion of the fall 2013 semester, he chose to transfer to St. John’s and leave the program he grew up admiring.“I always wanted to go there growing up,” DeJohn said. “But at the end of the day, thinking about everything, I just felt like I needed a fresh start.”On Saturday, DeJohn will have a chance to compete against his old team when No. 20 St. John’s (2-2) takes on No. 9 Syracuse (2-2, 0-2 Atlantic Coast) in the Cobb County Lacrosse Classic in Kennesaw, Ga. After switching from attack to midfield, DeJohn catapulted his way into the starting lineup three games into the season. Through four games, DeJohn has scored two goals and dished out two assists.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHe attended Jamesville-Dewitt (N.Y.) High School, home to one of the most storied high school lacrosse programs in the state, where he tallied a total of 195 goals and 62 assists, helping the Red Rams win a Class B state title during his senior season in 2010.DeJohn then played at Trinity-Pawling School (N.Y.) in 2011 while taking a post-graduate year before joining the Orange.After two seasons passed with zero game appearances at SU, DeJohn was compelled to make a move to further his lacrosse career. He reached out to St. John’s, trudged through the required paperwork and was relieved when it was all over.Since DeJohn never played a single game, was in good academic standing, changing conferences and received permission from Syracuse, he’s allowed to play for the Red Storm in 2014 without having to sit out a season.Kevin Rice, a junior attack for SU who spent two years playing the same position as DeJohn, is glad to see that he landed on his feet with another chance to succeed.“Eric’s a great player,” Rice said. “I know it wasn’t really working out for him in terms of playing time here, and I think he wanted to have a fresh opportunity and a chance to play somewhere.”This is still DeJohn’s first semester with the Red Storm, and he has already adjusted to the new lifestyle both on and off the field. St. John’s head coach Jason Miller said he has gelled with his teammates and is living off-campus with some of them.DeJohn said one of the similarities between Syracuse and St. John’s is the competitive spirit. By bringing his all and being fully committed every day, DeJohn has easily meshed with his new teammates.“I think to his credit he did a really good job of getting to know the guys,” Miller said. “And not only respecting them, but earning their respect as a player and as a person and it was a pretty easy transition from my perspective.”One of the main differences between Syracuse and St. John’s is the offense that each team runs. St. John’s brings more of an emphasis on dodging toward the goal in an effort to score, whereas Syracuse dodges to set up passes.And as a converted midfielder, DeJohn said this different tactic accentuates his skill set. DeJohn’s aptitude to aggressively go to goal and shoot well helps him provide another spark to an already talented offense, Miller said.“Having him here gives us another weapon offensively,” Miller said. “It’s never a bad situation to have too many of those.”It’s something DeJohn was never close to at SU.Instead of standing on the sideline, now he’s become an important part of a team coming off its best season in school history. He’s made the most of his transfer and revived his lacrosse career.Despite all of his ties to Syracuse, DeJohn said he views the game against the Orange as just another on the schedule.Said DeJohn: “Going in the same way as I always go. I always go into every game amped up, feeling aggressive, ready to go. It won’t be different from any other game.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

USC introduces new family-friendly tailgate

first_imgA university-wide task force will be implementing new family- and alumni-friendly tailgating zones in front of Bovard Auditorium and in portions of Alumni Park beginning with the USC-Fresno State game on Aug. 30.The task force was a joint collaboration between various departments including Student Affairs and Residential Life. The new additions serve to provide more memorable game day experiences for families and children according to Vice Provost for Student Affairs Ainsley Carry.“[University leadership] came up with this idea with the sole purpose of making game day a great place for everyone,” Carry said. “Like convocation and graduation events, we wanted to stage something that could involve everyone outside the stadium before home games.”Phase 1 of the new additions will be set up directly in front of Bovard Auditorium. All USC-affiliated departments and schools will be able to reserve the two spaces for tailgating.“The walkway will split this portion into two tailgating areas; departments and schools will be able to reserve the spaces on a first-come, first-serve basis,” Carry said.Aside from the Bovard addition, the right side of Alumni Park facing Doheny Library will also be converted into two family-friendly tailgating venues. One portion will be dedicated to an outdoor dining space equipped with tables, chairs and a variety of food and drink for purchase. The other will be utilized as a kid- and parent-friendly zone. Inflatables, slides and jump houses will be open to children at no cost, but parents must supervise their children within the zone at all times.Perhaps the most significant step to creating new family-oriented tailgating spaces is educating all fans about game day safety precautions. According to Carry, tailgating safety will be emphasized this season with the help of  the Dept. of Public Safety and University Communications.“This season, there will be lots of signage all over campus highlighting key fire, alcohol and electrical hazard safety measures that have previously been easily ignored,” Carry said. “[The university has] not done a good enough job of educating about fire hazards and safety in the past … we want to ensure fan safety this season and these signs will help us do that.”Vice President of Public Relations and Marketing Brenda Maceo will be responsible for the safety signs and other communication pieces that will be widely displayed across campus.Rini Sampath, USG vice president, said that the new changes will make the tailgating experience more accessible for all USC fans.“When [USG President Andrew Menard and I] were campaigning, I remember talking to students who come from different backgrounds and religions who don’t consume alcohol,” Sampath said. “A lot of game day is alcohol-centric, so these new additions will really provide more inclusive activities for everyone.”Changes to McCarthy Quad have not been finalized as USG receives more student input. The goal is to have more alcohol-free tailgating activities developed and implemented by fall 2015.last_img read more
