SHP Alumni and Yale Midfielder Brian Tevlin Ready to Make a Big Save

March 21, 2019


Seton Hall Prep Alumni Brian Tevlin is doing big things at Yale, and not only on the lacrosse field. 

The 2017 SHP graduate was a key contributor for Yale in his freshman season, even scoring a goal against Duke in the national championship. Heading into his sophomore season, Tevlin will be making even greater contributions off the field

Tevlin participated in a surgical process on Wednesday at a hospital near home in Livingston in hopes of helping someone in a dire situation by donating bone marrow. 

Tevlin first signed up for the national bone marrow donor registry as a high school junior. A few years later, Tevlin is slated to miss up to four weeks, maybe more, of the lacrosse season as he recovers from surgery. 

“I put myself in the other person’s shoes,” Tevlin said. “They’d told me it was a male in his 50s, and I thought God forbid if that was my father, and there was a college kid who only had to give up a couple of games for him to live. It seemed like a no-brainer when I said it to myself like that.”

Read the full story from The New Haven Register here:

The Prep community is praying for a full recovery for Tevlin as we continue to support his athletic and academic career at Yale.
