A short-stick defensive midfielder, Curro was Commonwealth Conference Tournament MVP, first-team All-Conference and a USILA honorable mention All-American as a sophomore -- registering 50 ground balls and 18 caused turnovers along the way. 

Curro also added a Division III national championship to his expanding résumé, grabbing three ground balls while forcing a pair of turnovers during the Mustangs' 16-14 victory against RIT May 26, 2013. 

Before Stevenson's Feb. 15 season opener against York College of Pennsylvania, Curro spoke with the Lacrosse Report about coach Paul Cantabene, Stevenson's first-ever national title and being the hunted.

Lacrosse Report: Do you like knowing everyone is gunning for Stevenson this season?

Connor Curro: In a way, yes, because I feel that our team knows this and will be playing with a chip on our shoulder. 

LR: Has coach Paul Cantabene changed the way he coaches this preseason?

CC: No, we have been coached similar to the previous years.

LR: What is coolest way you've gotten to celebrate the title?

CC: I thought our ring ceremony was really put together well, and was an awesome time to recognize our success, although the coolest way I got to celebrate the title has to be celebrating on the field right after the game with the team. 

LR: How has winning made you a better player?

CC: Well, we went through a lot of close games last year and found the right way to finish these games. I think that meant a lot and showed me what it takes when I am put in those situations again. 

LR: Will Stevenson repeat?

CC: I believe we have a good chance. We lost some players, but there are definitely other players that are stepping up who will give us a good chance to win. I see the team working really well together this preseason, and I can't wait to see what we can do this season.
