LITTLE SILVER – Red Bank Regional (RBR) senior and lacrosse captain, Jake Smolokoff of Little Silver, recently signed to play Division I Lacrosse for The New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) next fall.
Smolokoff is a student in RBR’s Academy of Pre-Engineering and hopes to become a civil engineer.
“Jake is one of the hardest workers and one of the best players to graduate out of the program in the five years I have been here,” head coach Don Femminella said.
Smolokoff’s career stats, as of May 8, include: 114 goals, 76 assists and 204 ground balls. He plays both midfield and attack positions.
Smolokoff also has excelled in the classroom in a very competitive technology program where he managed to make honor roll for all four years of high school and gained entrance in the National Technology Honor Society.
“I am extremely excited to go NJIT as it is exactly where I want to be,” he said. “It will be terrific to play for their first lacrosse team ever and for NJIT head coach (Travis) Johnson. The fit is perfect academically for me.”
