Congratulations to Edge 2015, Spencer Andrews on signing his NLI to Mars Hill University! Spencer, grew up playing box lacrosse in Uxbridge for the Enforcers, later picking up field and playing for the Newmarket Redbirds. Spencer, is best described as a two way midfielder, who can contribute on both sides of the ball. Spencer is a hardworking and reliable player who uses his athleticism on defense to stay with his man, create turnovers and scoop loose balls and run in transition. On offense, Spencer can create his own shot off the dodge, and possess a hard, accurate shot. Spencer can also finish in tight with a great stick and plays well off ball to create space and opportunities. Spencer also understands the commitment and effort required to battle and overcome adversity. In 2012 at the 1st Edge practice of the fall, Spencer suffered an injury during training, that resulted in a year long ACL injury. After months of rehabilitation and determination, Spencer returned in 2014, stronger and faster than before! We are very proud of Spencer's commitment and we look forward to following his career in the NCAA! Spencer is now the 3rd member of our 2015 class to commit to Mars Hill, joining Josh Bryers and Austin Bouchard!
