In the fall of 2017, there were at least 50 former LMSC players who played at the college level. A list of those players, along with the school they are attending and their year in school can be found below.

Our apologies to any player who we missed. If there is a player missing from the list below, please contact LMSC President Biff Sturla right away.

CONGRATULATIONS TO LMSC KEVIN LAWSON who led Tufts University to the 2016 NCAA Division 3 National Championship. Kevin was in the starting lineup for the national championship game and played a big part in the team's victory.

CONGRATULATIONS TO LMSC ALUMS JUSTIN AOYAMA, MILTON RICO AND CHRIS MARTIN who led Amherst College to the 2015 NCAA Division 3 National Championship. All three players were insturmental in Amherst's championship run.

In 2013, two former LMSC players were named to the NCAA Division III All-America teams. Julien Aoyama, a senior at Amherst College, was named second team All-America while David Rosenfeld, a junior at Franklin & Marshall College, earned third team All-America honors. Aoyama played for the LMSC Velez while Rosenfeld played for the LMSC Roadkill.

The NCAA, which most (but not all) colleges are a member of, offer three levels of competition. Division 1 is the highest level and is comprised mostly of large universities where the athletes train year round. At the division 1 level, schools may offer up to 9.9 scholarships for the men's soccer program and up to 12 scholarships for their women's program. At the division 2 level, schools may offer up to 9 scholarships for men's programs and up to 9.9 for women's programs. Division 3 schools may not offer athletic scholarships for any sport. Scholarships are usually only offered in fractions to individual players. Most schools however limit the amount of scholarships to a much lower number than what the NCAA allows. Unlike college football and basketball, very few soccer players are awarded full scholarships. Some leagues such as the Ivy League (U. Penn, Princeton, Harvard, etc.) do not allow schools to offer scholarships for athletics.

Unless you are a national team player, or close to it, soccer players need to realize that scholarships are rare. The best philosophy for those players is to concentrate on having soccer help you get into a school you might otherwise not get into. College coaches can help a player get into a school that he / she might not otherwise get into, but only to a limited extent. In the soccer world, a coach can help a student athlete get into a school that is one level higher academically, but not two or three levels. This is not college basketball or football, the college coaches can only do so much.

Another important philosophy to adhere to is: A student athlete should only choose a school that he or she would like even if he / she were not playing soccer. Is the school a good fit academically? Is the school a good fit socially? Would you enjoy the school even if you were not able to make the soccer team? If not, then this is not the right school for you.
