Clinton Kaboni commits to Hogs Lacrosse for 2021 Season

The Humboldt State lacrosse coaching staff revealed its first new commit for the 2021 lacrosse season, the team announced this March.

Hailing from Ontario, Canada via Sierra Canyon High School in the Los Angeles area, midfielder Clinton Kaboni will join the Hogs this fall after completing high school.

“We are very excited about our signing of Clinton,” head coach Jacob Hluboky said. “He has a great lacrosse IQ and has a knack to be in the right place at the right time, the ball just seems to find him. We look forward to having him be a part of our program.”

While relatively new to the outdoor game, Hluboky said Clinton is a highly skilled player after many years of box lacrosse and hockey — both in California and Canada.

Despite his young age, Clinton’s lacrosse resume is already packed with loads of experience in high-level lacrosse, including being named captain of the Indigenous Team BC in 2018; three years on the varsity squad at Sierra Canyon; two years of box lacrosse with the LA Heat club team; and two years of field lacrosse with the LA Heat.

With the MCLA canceling the 2020 season due to the coronavirus pandemic, Hluboky said signing a new recruit was a great morale boost and that he’s already looking forward to next season.

“We are very excited to have a player like Clinton join our program and can’t wait to get back at it,” coach said.
