PREP LACROSSE SPOTLIGHT: Eastside Catholic lacrosse midfielder Henry Jarvis delivers three touchdowns in Crusaders’ opening football win

The Prep Lacrosse Spotlight is a weekly series focusing on Washington state high school lacrosse players excelling in their other sports.

SAMMAMISH, Wash. – Eastside Catholic senior lacrosse midfielder Henry Jarvis is used to covering a lot of ground on the lacrosse field, but on Friday, Sept. 6 he brought his A-game to the gridiron scoring three touchdowns in the Crusaders’ football opener.

Jarvis, who grabbed 22 ground balls in 10 Boys Division I Washington High School Boys Lacrosse Association games last spring, rushed for 170 yards – 150 of them in the first half, as the No. 3 Crusaders rolled past Liberty 62-9 in their season opener.

Recognized by the Seattle Times as one of the Puget Sound region’s premiere prep running backs for 2013, the 5-10, 215-pounder is expected to make a significant impact for the Crusaders this fall on the gridiron – and this spring on the lacrosse field.
