Joe Koch profiles Chartiers Valley graduate Sean Lapcevic, a wide receiver at Case Western Reserve.
"It might be a new conference for the Case Western Reserve University football team, but for Chartiers Valley High School graduate Sean Lapcevic, it will be business as usual as the Spartans begin dual membership in the Presidents Athletic Conference and the University Athletic Association along with fellow UAA member Carnegie Mellon.
The Spartans and the Tartans open the season at 7 p.m. on Sept. 6 in Cleveland in the 29th annual Academic Bowl. The Spartans also will continue to play UAA members Chicago and Washington University of St. Louis along with the Presidents Athletic Conference rivals. A year ago, Case Western defeated Carnegie Mellon, 35-32, at the Tartans' Gesling Stadium.
"I'm just going to continue to prove myself in every aspect of my game," said Lapcevic, an accounting major who will be a four-year starter. "I haven't set any specific personal goals. I'm just focused on winning games.""
