Class of 2016 Announced

I am not an evaluator of lax talent, but the lack of lacrosse accomplishments in the player bios, is, um, curious...  http://www.goleopards.com/sports/m-lacros/spec-rel/102212aaa.html

Yep - we is late to the party.

Had some of the same reaction to the blurbs about HS accomplishments.  But comments from our kids at Philly lax tourney were optomistic re: incoming class - so I give it a wait and see.  Hey - maybe they had stellar club careers - which in some respects we overlook in sports like lax, soccer, etc.  

Will get an early on read re: Coach R's ability to coach these kids up to a better level.   Recruiting success is likely going to have to wait a year.  Hopefully we can find a stud or two and frankly I'd rather find them on the FO area and the D vs guys with gaudy scoring stats.   We actually have the scoring side reasonably well covered with returning players.

All we really have to go on are the reputation of the school and the coach, and the videos on YouTube/MaxPreps.  At first glance they're strong at the top but thin considerably down the ranks.  For the third year we're taking a kid from some Minnesota prep that no one has heard of.  Hmmm . . . .

The kids from Lawrenceville/McDonogh/Garden City/Delbarton/Huntington?  I'll have to check to see if they were starters and major contributors at these storied programs.  But these definitely are the places to look for lax talent.
