  • Major: Business Administration
  • HS: Baldwinsville, Class of 2017

Frank Delia never would have been an outstanding student at OCC or an All-American goalie on the 2018 National Championship team were it not for a conversation he had with his uncle. During Delia’s senior year at Baldwinsville High School he committed to play lacrosse at a four-year college which plays at the Division III level (Division I is the highest level). As Baldwinsville won the Section 3 championship and advanced all the way to the New York State semifinals, Delia’s uncle came to the conclusion his nephew had been under recruited and told him so. “He said, ‘I think you should look at another school. You have too much talent.’ After thinking about it I texted a buddy of mine playing at OCC, then got in contact with Coach Chuck Wilbur. One thing led to another and here I am!”

Just as everything worked our perfectly on the lacrosse field, so too did it in the classroom. Delia is a Business Administration major who loves the learning environment. “Things feel very personal in the classroom because of the small class sizes. My academics are great here. I feel really good about it.”

As he begins his sophomore year Delia finds himself in the best position possible. His dream of earning a Division I scholarship is alive and well and he’s looking forward to helping the Lazers pursue their 12th national title. “The tradition here is amazing. You look back at all of the great players who have come through here. It’s such an honor to play here and win a championship and make All-American. It’s opened so many opportunities for me. I’m so glad I came here.”
