Clay Del Prince



Human Biology/Pre-Med


A leader of the Brown Lacrosse program with a 3.90 GPA, Clay constantly transcends the daily life and reaches out to those near and far.  In the very near future, Clay’s tool of choice may be a stethoscope, checking on his patients’ heart and lung health.  He has already been accepted into Medical School in Buffalo, NY, staying close to his hometown of Hamburg, NY.


A Brown team Captain in 2013, Clay is a man of significant stature, character, and leadership.  Clay has always managed to lead two lives:  balancing his student-athlete life while also serving the community he lives in.  Clay pours himself into the challenges he accepts in life.  There is no doubt he will succeed in his professional career as well as he has in his collegiate career.  This has always been his objective, and Clay has never lost his razor-sharp focus on achieving this dream despite all of the responsibilities as an athlete and distractions of college life.  He does not know anything less than full throttle.  With Clay as a classmate, a teammate, or as a leader, you know you will have a devoted, trusted and thoroughly passionate man by your side or out in front leading the charge.


Clay has led the charge with the men’s lacrosse community outreach efforts, organizing and actively participating with the Fox Point 3rd Grade classroom of Mrs. DeMello, rarely failing to organize teammates to make the weekly trips to the school.  Clay also plays a large role with our major initiative:  the annual 36 hour run where the Brown lacrosse program has raised enough money ($18,000) to build a school in rural Sri Lanka, over $20,000 for the Innocence Project, and this past year $17,000 was provided for the Providence, RI, social service agency Amos House.


All-Ivy selection in 2012 (HM), he is an aggressive close defenseman and a two-year starter for the Bears. Matched up against the opponent’s best attackman each game, Del Prince ranked 14th in the nation with 1.86 caused turnovers per game, while only drawing two penalties the entire season.  He had five caused turnovers against Princeton, and four against Hartford, Duke and Providence. Del Prince also played a key role in Brown’s man-down defense which was ranked 5th nationally. He earned Brown’s Unsung Hero Award (2011), and the Dom Starsia Coaches Award (2012).
