Today’s ‘Uncommitted Spotlight’ features Top Gun Fighting Clams 2019 midfielder Jake Erickson of Acton-Boxboro (MA)
Lacrosse Honors: Dual County League All-Star Second Team as a Freshman, Dual County League All-Star First Team as a Sophomore, two year starter as an underclassman at Acton-Boxborough Regional High School Varsity
Academics: 3.6 GPA, Honor Roll in Accelerated/Enriched level courses every HS semester
Coaches Comments: “Jake is trending more sharply upward than perhaps any other uncommitted junior midfielder in the Clam program. He never misses an opportunity to train and to improve. And because of this, he has gone from a good midfielder to a downright outstanding one. The Massachusetts public school scene had best take note: they have a budding All-American on their hands with Jake. Alongside classmate Eric Raguin (a Brown commit at the attack position), the two will constitute one of the state’s best one-two offensive punches. Whether it’ll be enough to propel Acton-Boxboro deep into the MIAA playoffs in 2018 remains to be seen, but it clearly thrusts them into the fray.
“With the Clams, Jake will be nothing short of a focal point. With classmate JJ Levandowski (a Syracuse commit) fulfilling his summer responsibilities with IMG, middies will have to step up in our 2019 class is the class is to continue to carve out its spot as one of the country’s very best. Committed two-way middies Jake Teller and Ryan Schwender (Quinnipiac), Jack Dillon (Sacred Heart), Ric Carreras (St. John’s) and Will Kezerian (Hartford) will definitely do their part. But Jake will undoubtedly lead to charge among the uncommitted midfielders. Watch out ’19’s for any extended period of time and I can assure you that he’ll be one you’ll notice.”
Summer Tournaments with the Clams: This summer, Jake will attend the NALA Invitational, Sweet Lax Invitational, Trilogy Tournament in Rhode Island and the NLF National High School Lacrosse Championships with the Fighting Clams.
