Friday Focus with Christian Graff

The Landmark Conference is full of talented student-athletes and the "Friday Focus" is just one way fans can get to know them. This week the conference introduces Christian Graff, Susquehanna men's lacrosse player.

Graff will begin his junior year at Susquehanna next month. In his first two years with the Crusaders, the defenseman helped the team win back-to-back Landmark Championships. The 2013 title was the program's first Landmark title. Graff saw action in 15 games this past season as Susquehanna went 11-8 overall and 5-1 in the conference.
