Written by Robert B. Bonaparte, floralpark@antonnews.com Thursday, 08 May 2014 11:13

Dominick Roberge believes it’s his size that makes him a top-notch faceoff man for Sewanhaka’s boys lacrosse team.

“I have a size advantage,” said Roberge, a senior captain. “And I’m pretty much stronger than anyone I face against.”

Sewanhaka coach Peter Burgess agrees.

“He’s the strongest kid in the school, he’s always in the weight room” said Burgess. “He’s about 200 pounds but it’s all muscle, you can’t teach that.”
