Kevin Hover

Kevin Hover follows his brothers Mickey and Sean – both Captains and collegiate lacrosse players – as the Hover legacy of MHS Lacrosse comes to a close.  Their similar paths – excelling on the ice, then switching from baseball to the lacrosse field will end a seven year stretch of a Hover on the MHS field.

Kevin enters his last season with one last goal:  two more wins for the MHS team.  Last year, the Cougars won the Somerset County, the Bianchi and Skyland conferences, and the Group 3 State Championship, but needed two more wins to be deemed the Number One team in the state.  He is determined to be a key member of the team to reach the last hurdle as the best by winning the Tournament of Champions.

His work ethic is unmatched.  After leading the JV squad in scoring as a freshman, he didn’t crack the starting line-up until mid-sophomore season.  He was willing to run middie, just to get on the field.  As he did on the hockey team     that season, his injection of energy helped the Cougars in the final stretch of the season.  He continued to work hard during the summer and off season, and was ready in 2007 to help the Cougars win more than they had in program history. 

He will also Captain the Hockey team, his fourth varsity season.  

Some of his 2007 accolades include First Team in the following: All Skyland Conference, Bianchi Conference (Player of the Year), Somerset County, Trenton Times, and All Area Princeton Packet  He was also named First team All-State in the Newark Star Ledger. 

He was recognized as an  All- American by the New Jersey Interscholastic Lacrosse Coaches Association.  In addition, he was cited by Inside Lacrosse as one of The Scorpion Top Fifty USA Seniors.

Kevin is an intense competitor in the classroom as well.  He is a scholar athlete – he has been on the Honor Roll every marking period since entering high school, is a member of the National Honor Society. 

Kevin signed a National Letter of Intent to attend Rutgers.
