PASADENA, Md. – Below are 10 players that shined Saturday in the University of Maryland Fall Terrapin Classic at Chesapeake High. The event was held Saturday and Sunday and featured elite club teams from around the United States.
Chris Friedman, NXT 2015, Midfield, This kid is scary good. He has the tools to play at the Division I level. Good awareness on both ends of the field. Friedman has a nice shot on cage and he moves the ball well. Episcopal Academy (Pa.) has a special player in Friedman.
Timmy Monahan- Blackwolf 2015, Attack, Monahan has a solid game, he moves well with the ball and when he doesn’t have the ball. The junior attackman has a great shot on cage and will be a huge piece for Gonzaga (DC) this spring.
Matthew McIlroy, Leading Edge 2015/2016, Defense, McIlroy has good hands and makes solid checks. He moves his feet well. The St. Peters Prep (N.J.) sophomore will show up on college team’s radar screens after this weekend.
Noah Jessey, Madlax 2015/2016, Defense, Jessey is aggressive with his checks and moving his feet. His eyes always stay on the attackman he is facing and he gets to the groundballs. From Blue Ridge (VA), the sophomore defender has a game that will improve throughout high school.
Connor Davis, Philadelphia Freedom 2015, Defense, Davis helped his stock rise after this weekend, putting on a clinic on how to play solid D. Davis made some great checks, and is very talkative. The clearing game is also great. Davis will be instrumental for Bishop Shananhan (PA) in the spring on defense.
Eric Haab, NXT 2016, Attack, Another player from Episcopal Academy (Pa.) that had a great weekend. Haab is a fun player to watch with the way he goes right to the cage and moves the ball. Haab handles defensive pressure well and muscles his way to the cage. The kid has good feed and quick hands. The sophomore improved his stock this weekend.
Dylan Jinks, Southshore, 2015, The attackman has a solid game and he is a strong shot. The Southern Regional (N.J.) junior makes good decisions and has a good lax I.Q. His game will translate well to the college level.
Sammy Edwards, West Coast Starz 2015, Midfield, Edwards is quick and smart on the lacrosse field. He plays solid defense for a short stick middie. On offense the Beverly Hills (CA) junior moves the ball well to his teammates and has a good I.Q.
John Duffy, West Coast Starz 2015, Midfield, Honestly anyone from this WCS 2015 team is worthy of being on this top 10 list, the team plays hard and is well coached. But the Lincoln High (OR) junior stood out with his quicks and his ball movement. The young man looks like he enjoys being on the lacrosse field and is having fun. Duffy had some magnificent goals in a game against Southshore 2015.
Ryan McNulty, Philadelphia Freedom 2016, Defense, McNulty is a big presence on the defensive end of the field, He is strong and looks like he could play defensive end for the football team at Bishop Shanahan (PA) where he goes to high school. The sophomore has long arms and makes good checks. And he will run the clear up field to help create offense.
