A torn ACL sidelined Davis Gillenwater '19 for his entire junior season. That didn't turn off Mercer's coaching staff from wanting the talented attackman, as Gillenwater committed to the Georgia school this past summer.
"I went down to visit and kind of fell in love with the school," Gillenwater said. "The blaance of lacrosse and academics just felt right."
Gillenwater also strongly considered Richmond, but felt like he needed to get away from home. He's been away from the lacrosse field for too long, and he's eager to finish his career with the Saints on a high note.
"I ended up missing last season with a tough injury," Gillenwater said. "I definitely have a chip on my shoulder, I'm super excited to get back out there. We should have a pretty strong team."
Davis' brother Jack is a sophomore goalie for Sewanee in Tennessee.
