Jon Urbana’s Lacrosse career at the University of Villanova speaks volumes on the skill level you can expect from Urbana. While the numbers speak for themselves, let’s review Urbana’s awards and accolades during his three seasons at Villanova to get a snapshot of Urbana’s lacrosse skill set and expertise.
Urbana hails from Denver, CO and made a big impact for his hometown Denver East High School. Urbana lettered in both lacrosse and tennis three times, was selected three times as an all-conference player and was selected to the Colorado All-State Lacrosse team twice as team captain.
2002: Urbana came on strong in his rookie season of Villanova Lacrosse. While he didn’t score nay points in his initial season, Urbana did start ten of 14 games and picked up a total of 31 balls throughout the season. Urbana’s performance was enough to earn him Top Rookie status, a title awarded by the lacrosse club itself.
2003: A rookie season wouldn’t be it for Urbana as the 2003 campaign saw a strong follow-up. Urbana started 12 games with Villanova, posting 35 ground ball pickups, and registering his first point with an assist against Lafayette. Urbana was also part of a strong defensive front for the Wildcats, as the team only allowed 6.07 goals per game during their 2003 campaign. Villanova also held 8 of their 15 opponents to five goals or fewer. For his contributions to the 2003 season, Urbana was selected for second team all-conference honors.
2004: Urbana would meet high expectations for the 2004 Villanova Lacrosse season, leading one of the top defensive Lacrosse teams in the country. During the 2004 season, the Wildcats held four opponents to four or fewer foals and ranked 7th in scoring defense. The Wildcats would ride their tough defense all the way to the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Finals. For his part as the defensive anchor, Urbana garnered a first team all-conference selection, as well as a spot on the 2004 All-CAA Tournament team.
Urbana currently resides back in his hometown of Denver, CO where he and members of the Denver Outlaws run the Next Level Lacrosse Camp, a lacrosse day camp for male lacrosse players aged nine to 16.
