The dream began at a football game, but it’s lacrosse that’ll take Jack Coughlin to Navy.

The St. Joseph junior midfielder said he went to a Navy-Stanford football game when he was 4, and ever since, that’s where he wanted to go to college. He’s committed to the United States Naval Academy now.

“The high-level academics and the commitment to serve my country, it’s always been a dream,” Coughlin said.

He said he visited this past winter and was impressed with the facility, getting a good look at the life of an athlete.

Coughlin scored 24 goals and added 15 assists in 2019, his freshman season, as the Cadets won the CIAC Class S championship.

“Ever since I met Jack he has been an outstanding player. The best part of coaching him is his ability to be coached, his work ethic, his commitment and his selflessness,” St. Joseph coach Brendan Talbot said.

“Those are the same attributes that the Naval Academy requires as well. He is the type of person I hope my sons can grow up to emulate. He truly is a great player, a leader and excellent student, I’m glad we get two more years with him.”

Their 2020 CIAC season was lost to the COVID-19 pandemic. He played for Prime Time Lacrosse in the summer with some top-notch players, he said.

Coughlin also plays football for St. Joseph. He admitted the idea of trying to play both sports in college is intriguing but “up in the air right now.” He’s excited to play lacrosse there.
