Carey Egan '92
Inspirational three-sport captain excelled in lacrosse In football, basketball, and lacrosse, Carey Egan was an outstanding role model because of his character, selflessness, caring attitude, and hard work. He displayed excellent agility and was incredibly intuitive on the field, always knowing where to be and what to do at any moment. Co-captain for football, he was a devastating blocker at tight end and a tough anchor on the defensive line. Also co-captain for basketball, the team finished 17-4 and reached the semifinals of the county tournament. As a defenseman and tri-captain for lacrosse, he helped lead the team to a 14-4 record---the most wins in Pingry boys’ lacrosse history at the time. They became the first Pingry lacrosse team in decades to defeat arch-rival Lawrenceville and advanced to the state prep championship. Carey continued to play lacrosse at the University of Delaware, winning the America East/North Atlantic Conference Champions in 1993 and 1994.

In 1998, he was among 120 players invited to try out for the U.S. Men’s National Team. After college, Carey also played lacrosse professionally, including Major League Lacrosse’s Bridgeport Barrage, having been selected in the fourth round of the 2001 MLL Supplemental Draft. In addition, Carey played for the New York Athletic Club as part of both the United States Club Lacrosse Association and the American Lacrosse League.
