When he was younger, Jason Hollister’s parents drove by the park and saw kids with lacrosse sticks and helmets.

They stopped and inquired about what they saw as an unfamiliar sport.

After watching his two brothers play lacrosse, it was Hollister’s turn to pick it up.

Hollister, now a senior at Havelock, has played 10 years between the recreation league and this first season at Havelock High School.

On Thursday, in front of friends, family, coaches and administrators, the lacrosse captain signed his National Letter of Intent to play in college at Belmont Abbey, a Division II school in Belmont.

“As soon as I could, I got a stick in my hand,” Hollister said. “It’s a combination of every sport. It’s a contact sport.”

Hollister has a team-high 50 goals and 38 assists in the lacrosse program’s first season at Havelock High School.
