HEADstrong Lacrosse’s Justice Brovero Committs to Neumann University
Justice Brovero tried every sport atleast once, but the only sport that stuck was lacrosse.
The senior at Woodstown High School first picked up a lacrosse stick when he received one as a Christmas present in 4th grade. He’s been hooked ever since.
Although he wasn’t a standout his freshman or sophomore seasons, that all changed once he found out about HEADstrong’s Lacrosse program.
“Coach Sperry told me I should try out for HEADstrong and see what happens” said Justice. Well, he tried out and to his surprise he made the team.
In his first year playing for team HEADstrong, Justice’s coaches and teammates noticed an extreme improvement in his skills and confidence both on and off the field.
“Playing for HEADstrong made me a better player” recalled Justice.
In just a year he went from having zero NCAA College Lacrosse programs looking at him, to being recruited by over 10 schools.
Before Justice suited up for HEADstrong, he had little to no interest in playing college lacrosse, he says he lacked the confidence needed to play at that level. HEADstrong helped him change his mindset and reassured him that he was good enough to play college lacrosse.
“We are so proud of Justice,” HEADstrong Lacrosse South Jersey GM Michael Colleluori said. “ He has earned this opportunity and it’s an incredible feeling to play a part in the process. He’s a great kid with a lot of potential and we wish him the best at Neumann Men’s Lacrosse.”
Justice owes being recruited by so many colleges to his coach Tyler Klitchko, “He helped me with the entire recruiting process, he put my stats up on the site and I got so many calls. I owe it all to him and HEADstrong” he said.
Bravero took into consideration each and every school that looked at him, but ultimately the perfect fit for him both on the field and in academics was Neumann University. “Neumann is the perfect fit for me. They have my major (Cyber Security) and a lot of the other schools interested in me didn’t offer that” stated Justice.
Justice knows that putting on that HEADstrong jersey is more meaningful than any old regular lacrosse jersey. “Playing for HEADstrong inspires me, how all of these kids fight through what they’re going through. Nick never let anything stop him, he inspires me to continue to play and leave everything out on the field, every time” he said.
Going into his senior season, Justice has set some goals for himself that with his new found confidence he is sure he and his teammates will reach them. His first goal, break 100 goals. His second, Woodstown making it to the playoffs and winning a playoff game. “Our team has never won a playoff game, but I think if we come out fast and play our hearts out we can do it”
