“Arrighi was as steady and impressive as any other goalie in the camp, particularly on Day 2 while boosting his team by coming up huge with clutch saves during the playoff round. He’s got great size, technique, and athleticism, does a nice job reading low shots, and eats up takes from longer distances with discipline.”
On September 15, Luke announced his commitment to the University of North Carolina Tarheels.
Arrighi knew once he stepped on campus that he felt at home right at Chapel Hill. The team felt like such a tight-knit group that was working together to achieve a bigger goal both on the field and in the classroom which made it an easy sell for him.
Luke also liked the idea of getting to work with such a highly touted Tar Heels coaching staff with Joe Breschi and David Metzbower along with such an incredible goalie room at UNC led by Collin Krieg.
Arrighi has also had the opportunity to play on the national level and represent team USA. Earlier this fall, Arrighi was a part of the Team USA U16 squad that won the Brogden Cup beating team Canada and Haudenosaunee in the process.
Prior to becoming such a sought-after young talent, Luke was a multi-sport athlete playing hockey, baseball, and lacrosse.
Luke talks about how being a catcher in baseball has helped him greatly as a lacrosse goalie on the show.
During the show, Luke mentions how integral these two programs have been in his development as a goalie. Especially, being allowed to play up a level at certain times and getting to learn from other future college goalies like James Swartz at Harvard who helped train Luke’s fundamentals and athleticism in the cage.
Luke joins the show today to discuss early lessons in the cage, why he chose UNC, being a leader of your team, and much more!
Lacrosse is my passion! The game has given me so much and this blog is my way of giving back to the lax community. Specifically the most bad a$$ part of that community - the goalies! After learning to play goalie from scratch, I wanted to create a site where I could share what I learned with others so they too can become champions in the crease and in life.
