Chase Scanlan, who made headlines last spring by scoring 14 goals in a game on May 5, is transferring from Gowanda/Silver Creek (New York) to IMG Academy (Bradenton, Florida).
The news was first reported by the Dunkirk Observer.
Scanlan totaled 169 points last season with 104 goals and 65 assists. He helped Gowanda reach the Section 6 Class C championship game.
According to the New York State Sportswriters Association, Connor Fields of Bishop-Timon St. Jude (Buffalo, New York) holds the presumed Western News York record for goals in a season with 129 in 2013, followed by 108 in his senior season. Zed Williams scored 101 for Silver Creek in 2010.
IMG Academy’s prep team went 12-1 last season, playing a national schedule that included games against Hill Academy (Canada) and Army Prep.
