Senior Landon attackman Nate Buller has been a four-year starter for one of the top high school lacrosse programs in the nation. He battled injuries last season but still finished with 20 goals and 11 assists. Buller is now fully healthy, and the Bears have enough depth to make a run at the Interstate Athletic Conference title. Buller has committed to Navy.
What goals have you set for yourself this season?
Nate Buller: My goal for this season is to come every day ready to compete at the highest level I can. I feel like if everyone does that, then we can achieve our ultimate goal of an undefeated season.
As a senior, what is your message to some of the younger players about playing for an elite program like Landon?
NB: It's hard to realize it in the moment, but I try to make it known how fortunate we all are to wear Landon across our chest every day. I think it motivates a lot of us that we're lucky enough to be a part of such a dynasty and to savor every moment.
What does Landon have to do to regain the IAC title?
NB: I think the talent is there, and, obviously, the coaching is there, too, so if we all buy in 100 percent; there's no doubt in my mind we should get the title back.
What made you decide to attend the Naval Academy?
NB: This past fall, the Naval Academy reached out to me, and I right away wanted to visit. I feel like the Academy will bring the best out of me. It also is a decision much bigger than lacrosse, because at the end of the day, it is just a game, and playing lacrosse for Navy, while experiencing everything I'll experience there, will teach me things I wouldn't be able to learn anywhere else.
